Daily Joke: Man from Texas Challenges People in a Bar to Drink 500 Shots at Once
A wealthy businessman from Texas was in Chicago for one day, so he decided to explore the city and came across a popular local bar. Without wasting any time, he headed straight inside.
He went to the bar and started looking for the barman. While waiting for him, he turned around and saw that the bar was bustling with people, downing drinks and chatting loudly. He then thought of an idea.
After some time, the barman showed up and asked the man how he could help him. He leaned over the counter and told him he had a handsome offer to make. He then turned to face the large crowd and said:
"Hello, fellas! I've heard that you people can drink all day, so who among you can drink 500 shots back to back? If you prove me wrong, I'll give you a sum of five thousand dollars. So, do we have a deal?"
He then laid a bag of cash on the counter and announced that everyone in the room was welcome to take his offer. An eerie silence fell upon the crowd, and not a single soul budged. He watched as the silence continued to prolong.
"Okay, then. It seems that none of you is interested in earning five thousand dollars. I'll see myself out," added the wealthy man.
He was about to leave the bar when suddenly, he heard a faint voice from the crowd. When he turned around, he saw one gentleman walking towards him, and the entire crowd eyed him out of morbid curiosity.
But to everyone's amazement, the man passed by the wealthy tycoon and ran out the door. None of the people in the bar, including the businessman could understand why the man left. Everyone was under the impression that he had stood up to volunteer.
After some time, they forgot all about it. But an hour later, as the wealthy man waved goodbye to the barman and was about to head out, he stopped. To his surprise, the same man who stormed out of the bar had returned. He walked over to the Texan man and said:
"All right, I'll take that bet!"
Soon afterward, the bartender placed 500 shots, and the man downed them one after the other until he was done with all of them in very little time. Meanwhile, the crowd cheered for the brave man.
The wealthy Texan was shocked and he tilted back his hat and gave the bag of five thousand dollars to the winner. "Well, congratulations, young man. You won," he said. "But I'm curious. Where'd you go that one hour?"
The man chuckled a little, looked at the Texan businessman, and said, "Oh, that! I just went to the bar across the street to see if I could really do it first!"
It seems the man needed that hour-long break to win the money!
