Laugh With Lisa: Baptist Cowgirl

And here's another great gag from Lisa DeMarco.

A cowgirl, who just moved to Texas from Arkansas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of beer. She sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When she finishes them, she comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells the cowgirl, You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time.

The cowgirl replies, Well, you see, I have two sisters. One lives in Australia, the other in Dublin. When we left our home in Arkansas, we promised that wed drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So Im drinking one beer for each of my sisters and one for myself.

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom and leaves her alone.

The cowgirl becomes a regular at the bar, and always drinks the same way. She orders three mugs of beer and drinks them in turn.

One day she comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When she comes back to the bar for a second round, the bartender says, I dont want to intrude on your grief, but I want to offer my condolences on your loss.

The cowgirl looks quite puzzled for a moment, then the light dawns in her eyes and she laughs. Oh, no, everyone is just fine, she explains. Its just that my husband and I joined the Baptist Church, and I had to quit drinking. It hasnt affected my sisters though.
