Knowing well my affection for the sacred woman, my niece told me a joke about St. Brigit that she got out of a book I gave the family years ago in the hopes of bestowing a cultural blessing of some sort.
The book is The Cut-throat Celts from the Horrible Histories series by Terry Deary and illustrated by the lovely Martin Brown.
Now, I don't have the book in front of me, so I have to give you my niece's version, but I suspect it's close.
Q: Why is Saint Brigit like a lonely teacher?
A: Because she only has one pupil.
