The Joke

The Joke. End a 600-word fragment of a story with a joke you like or loathe.  Use the joke as a way of coloring the whole passage, but don’t just lead up to the joke.  The joke should be relatively short, and it might be better if the joke is somewhat odd.  A guy walks into a bar.  He says to the bartender, “I’ll have one g-g-gin and t-tonic, p-p-please.”  The bartender says, “One g-gin and t-tonic c-c-coming up.”  The customer glares suspiciously at the bartender, who smiles innocently.  Another patron walks into the bar and says, “Scotch on the rocks, barkeep.”  The  bartender says, “One Scotch rocks, coming right up.”  A moment later he brings the gin and tonic to the first customer, who says, “You were m-m-mimick-k-king m-m-me.”  The bartender, with a truly pained look on his face, says, “N-n-no.  I was m-m-mimicking that other g-guy.”
