TALE-JEST

A MAN WALKED INTO A BAR AND SAID, "BARTENDER, GIVE ME
A MARTINI, GIVE YOURSELF A MARTINI, GIVE EVERYBODY HERE
A MARTINI." SO THE BARTENDER DID, AND TOLD THE GUY HIS
BILL WAS NINETY DOLLARS. WHEN HE HEARD THIS MAN HAD NO
MONEY, THE BARTENDER THREW HIM OUT. THE MAN WALKED
BACK INTO THE BAR, REPEATED THE SAME SPEECH AND AFTER
DRINKING HIS SECOND MARTINI, AGAIN TOLD THE BARTENDER
HE HAD NO MONEY, SO THE BARTENDER ANGRILY THREW HIM OUT.
THE MAN WALKED BACK INSIDE AND SAID, "BARTENDER, GIVE
ME A MARTINI AND GIVE EVERYBODY HERE A MARTINI, BUT
DON'T GIVE YOURSELF ONE, BECAUSE YOU GET UGLY WHEN YOU
DRINK."
