Mary O'Malley was waiting at home for her husband to come home from work at the Guinness brewery. While she was putting the finishing touches on dinner, she hears a knock on the door. Mary goes to the door to find her husband's friend/coworker, Seamus, on the other side.
"Oh, Seamus! Come in, come in! Please, make yourself at home, I'm just waiting for my husband to come back from work. Can I offer you some tea?" Mary asked.
"No, thank you," replied Seamus. "Mary, unfortunately my visit tonight is not a social one. There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it... There was an accident and your husband, well, he fell into a vat of Guinness brew, and he drowned. I'm so sorry, Mary."
Mary collapsed to the floor, and Seamus did his best to comfort her. After a few minutes, she regained her composure enough to ask, "please tell me, because I cannot bear the thought of my husband suffering, was his death quick?"
"Mary, unfortunately I can't say that it was. You see... well... he had to get out three times to piss."
