Three Alcoholics and A Fly

An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman ordered pints

of ale at the local pub. As fate would have it, each

of their drinks had a fly

swimming in it.

The Englishman called the tavernkeeper over and said, “There’s a

fly in my ale! Throw this out and

me another.”

The Irishman simply flicked the fly out of his own drink and

continued drinking.

The Scotsman pulled the fly out of his drink, started squeezing it

between his thumb and forefinger, and said

to the fly, “Alright, spit it out! Spit it out!”
