Three whiskey reps
Three whiskey reps were seated in the restaurant waiting to have lunch with
the prime minister and assorted international statesmen.
'Right,' said the Bells' whisky rep, 'let's have a jar.' So saying he went
to the bar and returned with three large Bells.
These were quickly supped and the Teachers' rep said, Till get the same again.'
He returned with three large Teachers and they were supped with equal speed. Finally,
the Jamiesons' rep went to the bar and returned with three large Bells.
'Bells? Bells?' said the other two in chorus. 'Why didn't you buy Jamiesons?'
'Well, you see,' said the Jamieson man, 'it would hardly be polite to meet
all those dignitaries smelling of strong drink!'
