Talking You know your from Wisconsin if

Four retired guys are walking down a street in Mesa. Then they turn
a corner and see a sign that says "Old Timer's Bar " ..." ALL DRINKS
10 CENTS ! ".

They look at each other, then go in. On the inside, they realize in
this case, they should not judge the book by its cover.' The old
bartender says in a voice that carries across the room,
"Come on in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, Gentlemen?"

There seems to be a fully-stocked bar, so the men all ask for a
martini.

In short order, the bartender serves up 4 iced martinis - shaken not
stirred and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please." The four men
stare at the bartender for a moment then look at each other. They can't
believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and
order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the
bartender again saying, ......."That's 40 more cents, please."

They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand.

They've each had two martinis, and so far they've spent less than a
dollar. Finally one of the men says, "How can you afford to serve martinis
as good as these for a dime apiece?"

Here's my story. I'm a retired tailor from Brooklyn, and I always
wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $25 million and
decided
to open this place. Every drink costs a dime, wine, liquor, beer, all the
same."

"Wow. That's quite a story." says one of the men. The four of them
sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice three other guys at
the end of the bar who didn't have a drink in front of them, and hadn't
ordered anything the whole time they were there. One man gestures at the
three at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, What's
with them?"

The bartender says, "Oh, they are from Wisconsin They're waiting
for happy hour."
