And here is the joke:
A Texan walks into a pub in Ireland and clears his voice to the crowd of drinkers.
He says “I hear you Irish are a bunch of hard drinkers.
I will give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of Guinness back-to-back.”
The room is quiet and no one takes up the Texan’s offer. One man even leaves.
Thirty minutes later the same gentleman who left shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder.
“Is your bet still good?”, asks the Irishman.
The Texan says yes and asks the bartender to line up 10 pints of Guinness.
Immediately the Irishman turns around, facing all 10 pint glasses and empty them all one after the other.
The other pub customers cheer as the Texan sits in amazement.
The Texan gives the Irishman the $500 and says,
“If ya don’t mind me askin’, where did you go for that 30 minutes you were gone before?”
The Irishman replies, “Oh…I had to go to the pub down the street drink 10 pints to see if I could do it “.
