Four old retired guys are walking a street in Manchester. They turn a corner and see a sign that says, "Old Timers Bar -- ALL DRINKS 10p." They look at each other, then go in, thinking this is too good to be true. 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 each of the men ask for a double whiskey. In short order, the bartender serves up four double whiskeys and says, "That'll be 10p 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 40p, finish their drinks, and order another round. Again, four excellent whiskeys are produced with the bartender again saying "That's 40p more , please."

They pay the 40p, but their curiosity is more than they can stand. They have each had two double whiskeys, and so far they've spent less than a pound between them. Finally one of the men says, "How can you afford to serve double whiskeys as good as these for a 10p apiece?"

"I'm a retired builder from Manchester," the bartender said, "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 10p - wine, liquor, beer, all the same."

"Wow!!!! That's quite a story," says one of the men.

The four of them sipped at their whiskeys and couldn't help but notice three other guys at the end of the bar who didn't have drinks 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're from Scotland. They're waiting for happy hour, when drinks are half price."
