Joke: A duck walks into a bar…and asks the bar tender if he has any grapes. The bar tender says, ‘No, this is a bar, we don’t have grapes.’
The duck returns the next day and asks the same question. The bartender becomes annoyed and says “How many times do I have to tell you, this is a bar, we don’t have grapes.”
The duck returns the third day with the same question. The bartender is now upset and threatens to nail the duck’s feet to the top of the bar if he comes in and asks the question again.
The duck returns the following day and asks the bartender a new question, “Do you have any nails?” The bartender replies “no”.
The duck then asks, “Do you have any grapes?”
