The second incarnation of my blog
A guy walks into a bar and orders a beer. He takes a sip, and then suddenly the most incredible piano music he’s ever heard starts up. He looks around, but sees no piano, no speakers, no discernible source for the music.
Puzzled, he asks the barman, “Where is the music coming from?”
The barman answers, “Well I’ve got this little guy about one foot high, playing this little piano under the bar.”
“No, seriously”, says the guy, “where is it coming from?”
“Well, if you don’t believe me, take a look and see for yourself”, says the barman.
The guy gets up, walks around the bar and looks underneath. Sure enough, there’s this tiny little man playing a tiny little piano. The little man waves and asks if he has any requests.
Amazed, he asks the barman, “Where in hell did you get that little guy?”
The barman answers, “Well, I was taking the trash out into the alley and saw this old dirty lamp. I rubbed the dirt off it, and suddenly this genie popped out and said ‘I’ll grant you one wish, but one wish only! So now I have this little man.”
“Wow!”, says the guy, “is that lamp still out there?”
“I guess so”, says the barman, “go out and take a look.”
The guy rushes out the back door and sure enough, there’s this dirty old lamp. He picks it up and rubs it. Out pops the genie and says, “I’ll grant you one wish, but one wish only!”
Beside himself with excitement, the guy yells, “I want a million bucks!”
The next instant the alley is filled with a million quacking ducks.
Disgusted, he walks back into the bar and says to the barman, “Man, this genie of yours has a real problem with his hearing!”
“No kidding”, says the barman, “did you really think I asked him for a 12-inch pianist?”
