Joke of The Day

A guy walks into a bar on a Saturday night by himself. He sits down at the bar and orders a beer.
After he finishes gulping down half, he proceeds to pour the other half on his right hand. After doing this three or four more times, the confused bartender asks him what in the hell he's doing.
The man explains "I'm getting my date drunk"
