An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman went into a sweet shop together.
I'll have 20p worth of those sweets up there,' said The Englishman, pointing to
ajar on a high shelf. So The shopkeeper got out his ladder, climbed up, took down
The jar of sweets and gave The Englishman 20p worth, climbed The ladder, and put
The jar back up again.
'Now what do you want?' he asked The Scotsman.
'I want 20p worth of those sweets also,' said The Scotsman, so The shopkeeper
again got out his ladder, climbed up, gave The Scotsman his 20p worth and was
just about to climb back up again when he said to The Irishman, 'I suppose you
want 20p worth of those sweets too?'
'No,' said The Irishman. So The shopkeeper climbed up The ladder, put The jar
away, climbed down The ladder, and put The ladder away.
'Now,' he said to The Irishman, "what do you want?'
'10p worth of those sweets,' said The Irishman.
