Only rarely does a joke of this calibre come along!
A rabbit walks into a pub and says to the barman "Can I have a pint of beer
and a Ham and Cheese Toastie?". The barman is amazed but gives the rabbit a
pint of beer and a ham and cheese toastie. The rabbit drinks the beer and
eats the toastie, he then leaves.
The following night the rabbit returns and again asks for a Pint of Beer
and a Ham and Cheese Toastie. The barman, now intrigued by the rabbit and
the extra drinkers in the pub (because word gets round) gives the rabbit
the pint and the toastie. The rabbit consumes them and leaves.
The next night, the pub is packed, in walks the rabbit and says "A pint of
beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman". The crowd is hushed as
the barman gives the rabbit his pint and toastie and then burst into
applause as the rabbit wolfs them down.
The next night there is standing room only in the pub, coaches have been
laid on for the crowds of patrons attending, the barman is making more
money in one week than he did all last year. In walks the rabbit and says,
"A Pint of Beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman", smiling and
accepting the tributes of the masses. The barman says, "I'm sorry rabbit,
old mate, old mucker but we are right out of them Ham and Cheese Toasties".
The rabbit looks aghast, the crowd has quietened to almost a whisper, when
the barman clears his throat nervously and says, "We do have a very nice
Onion Toastie". The rabbit looks him in the eye and says, "Are you sure I
will like it?" The masses bated breath is ear shatteringly silent. The
barman, with a roguish smile says "Do you think that I would let down one
of my best friends, I know you'll love it". "Ok" says the rabbit," I'll
have a Pint of Beer and a Cheese and Onion Toastie". The pub erupts with
glee as the rabbit quaffs the beer and guzzles the toastie, he then waves
to the crowd and leaves....
.....NEVER TO RETURN!!!!!!
One year later in the now impoverished public house, the barman (who has
only served 4 drinks tonight, 3 of which were his) calls time. When he is
cleaning down the now empty bar, he sees a small white form, floating above
the bar. The barman says, "Who are you" To which he is answered, "I am the
ghost of the rabbit that used to frequent your public house". The barman
says, "I remember you, you made me famous, you would come in every night
and have a Pint of Beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, masses came to see
this place was famous" The rabbit says, "Yes I know". The barman said, "I
remember, on your last night we didn't have any Ham and Cheese Toasties,
you had a Cheese and Onion one instead" The rabbit said "Yes, you promised
me that I would love it". The barman said "You never came back, what
"I DIED", said the Rabbit.
"NO!" said the barman, "what from".
After a short pause the rabbit said...
