A cowboy, who is visiting Wyoming from Nevada , walks into a bar and orders
three mugs of beer. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each
one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three

The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, 'You know, a mug goes flat after
I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time.'

The cowboy replies, 'Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona , the
other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Nevada , we promised that
we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking
one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself.'

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He
orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.

One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and
fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender
says, 'I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my
condolences on your loss.'

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and
he laughs.

'Oh, no, everybody's just fine, 'he explains, 'It's just that my wife and I
joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking.'

'Hasn't affected my brothers though.'
