I found this on a web forum. LOL.
Seamus O'Brien had been hailed the most intelligent Irish man for three years running. He had topped such shows as the 'Just a Minute Quiz' and 'Quicksilver'. It was suggested by the Irish Mensa board that he should enter into the English Mastermind Championships. He did, and won a place.
On they evening of the competition, Seamus entered from the audience and placed himself in the Leather Seat and made himself comfortable. The lights dimmed and a spot light pointed at his face.
Magnus said "Seamus, What subject are you studying?." Seamus responded, "Irish history".
Very well said Magnus, Your first question: "In what year did the 'Easter Rising' take Place?"
Seamus responded .."Pass."
"OK" said Magnus, "Who was the leader of the Easter Rising?", Seamus Responds .."Pass."
"OK" said Magnus, How long did the Easter Rising Last?" Seamus Responds.. "Pass."
Instantly, a voice in the crowd shouted, "Good Man Seamus... Tell the English Nothing..."
