"What would you like?" says the barman.

"What would I like?" says Bob. "A bigger house, more money and a more attractive wife."

"No," says the barman, patiently. "I meant what do you want?"

"To win the lottery, for my mother-in-law to die and for my child to be born healthy!"

"What's it to be?" says the barman, less patiently.

"A boy or a girl, I don't care."

"You misunderstand me," says the barman, impatiently, "I only asked what you want to drink."

"Oh," says Bob, "I see. Why didn't you say so? What have you got?"

"Nothing at all," says the barman. "I'm perfectly healthy."

They need to hire a new bartender.  :)


Marianne TheOtherTink

Lol, T(h)ink - they say that the client is always right. :O:ermm::D

Yes, the "Green Fairy" might have proposed a better solution:




Virginia TheOtherTink

O'She is just glorious, O'Tink! The amazing multidimensionality of Sir James Barrie to come up with a character like Tinker Bell, who knew? (Well, actually it may be ANOTHER Tink who sees and explores the remarkable depth/diversity of our Tinker Bell...)

TheOtherTink TheOtherTink

Yes, Marianne, the Green Fairy would certainly approve of the Earthquake Cocktail.  :D

TheOtherTink TheOtherTink

Yes, Virginia, Tink is a fairy of many aspects.  :) :D

Marianne TheOtherTink

T(h)ink - this is especially for you. Take a nice break and enjoy slowly - easy, easy:



TheOtherTink TheOtherTink

Wait a minute, Marianne!   There seem to be a lot of recipes for the Earthquake cocktail, the more modern ones with a lot less absinthe than Toulouse-Lautrec's


Marianne TheOtherTink

Yes indeed, T(h)ink, there are and were various recipes, and many questions remain(ed) unanswered.


Marianne Rooster

Lol, Rooster, that's rather radical (and isn't the bartender wasting a good bottle?); a spaghetti "hat" with a nice pesto sauce can do the job.



Marianne, I just want to acknowledge your fun post and watch how everybody is responding...8-)  <3  :P

Marianne Virginia

Lol, Virginia, as you see, the "Green Fairy" is busy, with testing, experimenting and analysing.

According to the latest news, the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny might complain!


Virginia Virginia

Oh yes, Marianne, complaints are in order and maybe Her Honour the Tooth Fairy and her confrere the Easter Bunny should get up a petition or something!  :P

Marianne Virginia

Lol, Virginia, petitions are indeed perfectly "fashionable".
