    Four old retired guys are walking down a street in Naples, Florida
    >> They turned a corner and see a sign that says, 'Old Timers Bar -all
    >> drinks 10 cents.'They look at each other, and then go in,
    >> thinking this is too good to be true.
    >> The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, 'Come on
    >> in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, Gentlemen?' There seemed
    >> to be a fully-stocked bar, so each of the men ask for a martini. In
    >> short order, the bartender serves up four iced martinis.. Shaken, not
    >> stirred,and says, 'That'll be 10 cents each, please'.
    >> The four men stare at the bartender for a moment. Then look at
    >> each other..They can't believe their good luck. They pay 40 cents,
    >> finish their martinis, and order another round. Again, four excellent
    >> martinis are produced with the bartender again saying, 'That's 40 cents,
    >> please.' They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they
    >> can stand. They have each had two martinis and so far they've spent less
    >> than a dollar. Finally one of the men says, 'How can you afford to
    >> serve martinis as good as these for a dime a piece?'
    >> 'I'm a retired tailor from Boston ,' the bartender said, 'and I always
    >> wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lottery for $25 million and
    >> decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime - wine, liquor,
    >> beer, it's all the same.' Wow!!!! That's quite a story,' says one of
    >> the men. The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but
    >> notice seven other people at the end of the bar who didn't have drinks
    >> in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were
    >> there.
    >>
    >> One man gestures at the seven at the end of the bar without drinks and
    >> asks the bartender, 'What's with them?' The bartender says, 'Oh,
    >> they're all old retired farts from Ohio, they're waiting for happy
    >> hour when drinks are half price.'
