A man walks into a bar and asks for a drink of water.
The bartender pulls out a shotgun and shoot the bar beside the man's hand. The man then says "thank you" and leaves a tip. Why did the man say "thank you"?
Because he was insane? Because he wasn't really a man but a robot and was programmed to say thankyou? Don't know!! Is there a clever punchline to this question?
Because the man had the hiccups, which were cured by the shotgun blast.
Congratulations, Mr. Moonlight.
The question is about perspectives and how different people perceive simple to extreme actions.
Studies have shown that most members of the military, law enforcement, and other professions that face extreme circumstances on a regular basis find the bartender's action to be within the norm. While others that do not face dramatic and excessive situations find the bartender's actions beyond the pale.
Hey, that's a pretty good one. I never would have guessed.
It seems like anyone would be a little shocked if someone you didn't know pulled out a loaded shotgun and fired it though. Even if you're used to guns. Maybe not on a range, or in the woods, but in a bar?
