A man walks into a bar and sees two slabs of meat suspended from a beam in the ceiling.
“What are those doing there?” he asked the barmen.
“That’s a tradition we have here: if you jump up and touch both pieces of meat in one jump, you have an open tab and everything you drink for the night is free. But beware, if you attempt it but don’t touch both pieces of meat, then you have to foot everybody else’s bill this evening.”
The man thought about it for a bit, before saying: “I’ll just have a pint of beer please.”
“You’re not going to try the challenge?” the barman asked?
“No. I thought about it, but the stakes are too high.”
