50 word story

So this ghost walks into a bar, causing everyone there to clear out, in a hurry. Except the bartender, who stands there, nonchalant, wiping the bar down, collecting dirty glasses. The ghost says to the bartender, ‘I’d like a whiskey.” The bartender, unperturbed, replies, “Sorry, we don’t serve spirits.”

  1. A man walks into a bar, sits down and orders a drink. The barman gives him his drink, accompanied by a bowl of peanuts.

    He hears a voice, “You look great tonight!” it says, “You really look fantastic…. and that aftershave is just wonderful!”

    The man is confused, but tries to ignore it.

    “I love your tie! Can we be friends?”

    He looks, the bartender is busy and there is no one around. He shakes his head.

    Realising he has no cigarettes, he goes over to the cigarette machine.
    He puts in his money and he hears another voice, “You’re the stupidest, most idiotic man I’ve ever met. You stink too, and you’re ugly!”

    By now, the man is extremely confused. He turns to the barman and demands an explanation…

    “Ah yes sir,” the barman responds, “The peanuts are complimentary, but the cigarette machine is out of order.”

  2. Yep! That’s good!! Very wry.

    Ahem (my offering):
    Man walks into a pub, notices a gorilla sitting the corner. Goes up to the bar, asks the barman.
    “What does he drink?”
    “Anything he wants to,”
