VIDEO: President Obama Jokes About Paddling Congress

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- While in Dublin, Ireland Monday President Obama joked that "if members of Congress aren't behaving, give them a little paddle, a little hurl."

The quip came after the president received a hurling stick as a gift from Taoiseach Enda Kenny. Hurling is an open-field game that is a mix of lacrosse, field hockey and soccer.

Kenny demonstrated to Obama how to use the stick after holding a bilateral meeting with the president where they discussed various issues including the economy.
