Three Pints a Day


There was a fellow who moved to a new town in Ireland. Each day he would visit the pub and order three pints which he proceeded to drink.

After a few weeks one of the townspeople approached him and asked if there was any significance to his ritual. The man explained that he had two brothers who had moved, one to Australia and one to the United States. They made a pact that each day they would visit a pub and order three pints to remember one another.

One day the fellow comes into the pub and orders two pints.

Thinking the worst, someone asked if one of his brothers had passed away. The man replied that his brothers were in good health.

When asked why he had ordered only two pints, the man replied, "I am still drinking to my two brothers, but as for meself - I have given up drinking for Lent."
