A guy walks into a bar and asks for 3 beers & the bartender puts them up. The guy says “Happy Birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday”, drinks all the 3 beers, pays for it & walks out.

A year later the same guy comes to the bar again, orders 3 beers and does the same thing he did the previous year.

The bartender watches him & out of curiosity asks the chap why.

The guy says, “Well, I have a friend in France & a friend in London. We have our birthdays on the same day. Since we are not together, we decided that on this particular day we get into a local bar & have a beer for each other”.

Next year comes. The man comes to the same bar & asks the bartender for just two beers.

Surprised, the bartender gives him 2 beers. The guy says “Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!” & starts drinking the beers.

The bartender asks “So which one is dead? One in France or the one in London”.

“No one.”

“Then why just two beers!”

“Well, I gave up drinking.”
