|Three pieces of rope were wandering in the desert. They were very
hot and thirsty. They came upon a bar and one went in. He asked for a
drink and the bartender said, "Read the sign buddy we don't serve
"Oh come on just this once," the rope asked again. The bartender said "nope," so the rope left.
The second rope figured he was a bit better looking and maybe the
bartender would soften a little and let him have a drink. He went in and
asked for a drink, the bartender shook his head and said "Hey
Buddy, it's just like I told your friend we don't serve ropes
here." Dejected the rope left the bar.
The above bit of laughter was sent in by Jan Jennrich. Thank you Jan.
