Four Old Retired Guys Are Walking Down A Street

Four old retirees were strolling down the street in Cooktown when they turned a corner and spotted a surprising sign that read:

‘Old Timer’s Bar – All drinks 10 cents’

They shared a look of disbelief. This seemed too good to be true. Sure enough, they walked into the bar, their curiosity piqued.

The old bartender greeted them with a warm voice that echoed across the room, “Come on in and let me pour one for you! What’ll it be, Gentlemen?”

The bar was fully stocked with an impressive selection of liquor. Each man decided on a martini. Before long, the bartender served up four perfectly iced martinis, shaken, not stirred. He then said, “That’ll be 10 cents each, please.”

At first, the men were stunned. They took a moment to exchange glances of sheer amazement. They then handed over 40 cents and enjoyed their drinks, savoring the bargain.

With their martinis finished, they eagerly ordered another round. Once more, the bartender delivered four impeccable martinis and repeated, “That’s 40 cents, please.”

A dollar for two martinis each? This was unbelievable! Finally, one of the men couldn’t keep quiet anymore and asked, “How can you afford to serve such excellent martinis for just 10 cents each?”

The bartender smiled warmly and explained, “I’m a retired tailor from Sydney. Always dreamt of owning a bar. Last year, I won $25 million in the Lottery and decided to live my dream. Everything here costs 10 cents – wine, liquor, beer, you name it.”

The men were floored by the story. They took their time sipping the wonderful martinis. Meanwhile, they noticed a group of seven individuals at the far end of the bar. Oddly enough, none of them had drinks in front of them and hadn’t ordered anything during the entire time.

Curious, one man gestured towards the drink-less bunch and asked the bartender, “What’s with them?”

With a knowing smile, the bartender responded, “Oh, they’re all waiting for happy hour when drinks are half price!”
