A man walks into a bar...
A man walks into a bar and says to the bartender, "would you give me a cold one?"
The bartender said, "I'm not giving away anything."
The man says, "what if I show you something you've never seen before?"
The bartender sighs and says, "okay."
The man pulls out a satchel, grabs a squirrel which runs across the bar to the piano nearby. It begins to play.
The bartender, surprised, gives the man a frosty mug.
A little later the man asks for another "cold one."
THe bartender reminds him that nothing's free.
The man says, "what if I show you something else you've never seen?"
The bartender is skeptical, but he agrees.
THe man pulls out the satchel again, grabs a frog which hops over to the piano with the squirrel. He begins to sing to the squirrel's accompaniment.
The bartender hands him another drink.
Another man's been watching the exchange and he forms a scheme. He says to the first customer. "Hey, I'll give you a thousand dollars if you give me that frog."
The first customer asks, "will you buy me a drink, too?"
The man agrees, pays, and takes the frog.
THe bartender looks at the first customer and says, "are you crazy!? That frog is worth more than a thousand dollars!!"
The man laughs and says, "nah, the squirrel's a ventriloquist."
