An old one but a good one May 31, 2007Posted by Rambling Man in Poetry & Humor.
Johnny Ryan walks into a pub and orders 3 pints in 3 glasses. He walks to a table, sits down, and drinks each drink one at a time. When he was finished he went up to get 3 more.
The bar man said, “Why do you get three different drinks at a time ?”
Johnny said, “When my two brothers moved away we all promised that every day we would drink a pint for eachother.”
The bar man said, “Jaysis that’s great altogether !”
So Johnny did this for a number of months. But one day he walked in and only ordered two pints. Everybody looked up and bowed their head. When Johnny walked up to the bar man, the bar man said, “I am so sorry about your brother.”
Johnny looked at him and said, “Oh no, tis all right – I’m just off the drink for Lent !”
