What in God’s name and that of his holy mother does that mean? Or what is she suppose to be cutting? And who the hell is she? These are just three questions that come out of this rather peculiar question. So, am I being like the typical Irish man (woman) here? You know the joke:-
SOMEONE NON-IRISH: Is it true you Irish always answer a question with another question?
MAD IRISH WOMAN: Who told you that?
Well, in the meantime I did a little searching for the term “How’s she cuttin'” and found out that the cutting refers to a boat cutting through the water. And we all know what it means. It means “How are you”.
MAD IRISH WOMAN: HOW’S SHE CUTTIN’?
MAD IRISH MAN: LIKE A KNIFE
Is that good or bad? Does that mean that the mad irish man is in fine form or has he a splitting headache and he feels he’s being split in two from the head down?
I GIVE UP.
