Subject: RE: BS: Joke thread for 2024
This guy walks into a bar and sets a large box on the barstool next to him. The barkeep comes over and says "What'll you have?" The man says I'm a bit short on funds at the moment but if I show you something amazing will you stand me to a drink?" The bartender looks skeptical and says it would have to be pretty incredible. So the man opens the box and pulls out a tiny grand piano and an itsy-bitsy stool. The he pulls out a chipmunk and sits him on the stool and lo and behold the chipmunk begins to play some Beethoven ... and he's brilliant. The barman allows that that was pretty incredible and pours the guy a double shot of scotch.
   After finishing his drink the many offers to show the bartender something even more amazing for another drink. He replies "More amazing than a chipmunk pianist? Show me what you got." The man reaches back into the box and sets a little dog up on the bar. The chipmunk plays an intro and then the wee dog begins to sing. He sings Danny Boy and there's not a dry eye in the house. The bartender pours him another stiff one and then he says "You seem to be down on your luck, how about I buy these animals?" The guy says " Well, the chipmunks been with me for long time but I guess I could part with the dog." They agree on a price and the barman takes the dog in the back to feed him. A third man standing nearby begins to berate the man saying "How could you sell that dog. Why a singing dog could make you a fortune." The places a finger to his lips and says "Shhh, the chipmunk is a ventriloquist" and quickly exits the bar.
