>>> An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three
>>> pints of Guinness
>>> and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out
>>> of each one in
>>> turn.
>>> When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and
>>> orders three more.
>>> The bartender approaches and tells him, "You know, a
>>> pint goes flat
>>> after I draw it; it would taste better if you bought
>>> one at a time."
>>> The Irishman replies, "Well, you see, I have two
>>> brothers. One is in
>>> America, the other in Australia, and I'm here in
>>> Dublin. When we all
>>> left home, we promised that we'd drink this way to
>>> remember the days
>>> when we drank together. So I drinks one for each o'
>>> me brothers and
>>> one for me self."
>>> The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and
>>> leaves it there.
>>> The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar, and
>>> always drinks the same
>>> way: He orders three pints and drinks them in turn.
>>> One day, he comes in and orders two pints.
>>> All the other regulars take notice and fall silent.
>>> When he comes back
>>> to the bar for the second round, the bartender says,
>>> "I don't want to
>>> intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my
>>> condolences on your
>>> great loss."
>>> The Irishman looks confused for a moment, then a
>>> light dawns in his
>>> eye and he laughs.
>>> "Oh, no. Everyone's fine," He explains, "It's just
>>> that I joined the
>>> Mormon Church and I had to quit drinking."
