“No, I’m A Frayed Knot”

by Steve Mitchell

A string goes into a bar and orders a beer.

The bartender scowls and says, “We don’t serve beer to strings in this bar.”

The sting leaves.

A bar patron watches, then says to the bartender, “That’s too bad. I wanted to see what it looked like – a string drinking a beer.”

“Ahh, it’s a waste of time,” says the bartender. “And, anyhow, strings ain’t got no money.”

“Oh, yeah.”
