Twenty Bottles of Bud

Found myself in a bar near the Sub Base, in New London, CT. A group of skimmer surface sailors (targets) came in. One of them said in a loud voice, "I hear you Bubble Heads think you're great drinkers. I bet you $5,000 that no one here can drink 20 bottles of Bud in 10 minutes."

The bar went silent, but the skimmer notices one old Submarine Chief leaving. No one took the bet.

40 minutes later, the Submarine Chief who had left, returned and said, "Hey, Target, is your bet still on?"

"Sure," said the skimmer, 20 bottles of Bud in 10 minutes for a bet of $5,000."

"Outstanding," replied the Chief, "So line up the bottles and start the clock."

It was very close but the last drop was consumed with 2 seconds to spare.

"Ok, Target, pay up!" said the Submarine Chief.

"Unbelievable, but here's your money!" "But, tell me, when i first offered the wager, I saw you leave, Where did you go?"

"Well, Sonny," replied the old Chief, "$5,000 is a lot of money to a man like me, so I went to the bar across the street just to see if I could do it first....."
