Looking For Water in the Desert...



I thought I’d take a cue from Akmal and post a trivia queston…No, not suffering from Writer’s Block, but more like wireless gone bonkers and won’t let me upload photos and long posts…=)


Anyway, here goes:-



A man wonders around a desert town on his horse, desperately looking for water…He then sees a bar, dismounts the horse, walks in (ala Clint Eastwood) and demands for water…


The man’s hostile way of demanding the water got the bartender a bit pissed, and he told the man: “Ask nicely”…

The man gets even madder and demands: “Give me water!


The bartender, instead of giving the man the water, whipped out a gun and points it at the man…



The man, gulps once, upon seeing the gun and says: “Ah, never mind. I’ll leave. Thanks for giving me what I want, mate

The man leaves the bar and continues on his journey on his horse, not stopping to look for more water…





The question: Why did the man thank the bartender, by saying “Thanks for giving me what I want, mate”, and why did he not continue looking for water?




Hehe…Those who know the answer without having to think (meaning you have read something similar somewhere), do me a favour and don’t answer first…

Give chance to others, lar, k?



Note: The first correct answer (not all ar) earns a teh-tarik when I meet you…=)

Since you ask those who knows not to answer first, I will just state that the person had an condition when he entered the bar. Do I get my teh tarik?

Q: Why did the man thank the bartender & why did he not continue looking for water?

A: He's got his water. The gun's a water gun.

Am I good or am I good? The teh tarik's mine but then again Daphne, only if we met right? If only.

Hi Guy in the Glass,

Ah-ha...I think you got the answer, although I can't be sure until you give the full answer...

But thanks for being a sport and answering in 'code'...=)

PS: If you're right, then yeap, sure you get your teh-tarik...Where u?
OK. Here is the answer. The person has hiccups. For those who do not know, hiccups can be cured by drinking water or by getting a shock. By pulling out a gun, the bartender gave the person a shock which cured his hiccups.
Hi Daphne, I am from PJ. You can find my contact on my blogsite.

Cheers.
