Guy Walks into a Bar Jokes
Three pieces of string go into a bar. The first orders three beers from the bartender. "I don't serve you pieces of string, go away". The second piece of string has a go at ordering their beers. The bartender gets mad "Look here I told you I don't serve you pieces of string, now go away". The third piece of string goes up to the bar and orders their beers. The bartender bristles as he asks "Are you a piece of string?" "No I'm a frayed knot".
