An Irishman named Patsy loved his wife. But when the latter slept, the man left their bedroom and went somewhere.
His wife suffered from insomnia and in order to fall asleep soundly, she took sleeping pills and slept through the night. So the husband was going to dig a tunnel.
So, fifteen years in a row, Patsy dug an underground passage to achieve her goal. Sometimes the man did his day job too, when his wife went shopping or wherever.
He did this work using different tools: spoons, shovels and when his wife fell into a deep sleep, he even used power tools.
His destination was the bar where he could go for beer. During these works, he wasted all his energy.
After digging every day, he came back tired and fell asleep to go to work in the morning.
