"So long, it's been good to know you."

Still reeling from the recent visits of Queen Elizabeth II as well as U.S. President Barack Obama, Irish folks are exhausted and desperately need a respite.

The visits were lovely while they lasted but thankfully they are now over. Finito! Everyday Irish folks say they need to get back to a normal life.

Irish police want to spend less time on security and more time working on a cold case, Who Threw the Overalls in Mrs. Murphy's Chowder.

Tourist associations advise that any high-profile folks planning to visit the Emerald Isle put their trips on hold for a few months to give the locals some time to rest up. A top Irish official commented off the record about what he'd like to say to these potential visitors: "Y'know, that song When Irish Eyes are Smiling kinda says it all. To keep us smiling, stay in your own countries and don't bother us for a while."

And just in case the Queen and/or Obama may be planning return visits (horrors!) in the near future, some revelers at a Dublin pub hope to stop them in their tracks by sending them a long-distance serenade using the words of the late Woody Guthrie: "So long, it's been good to know you."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
