Joke of The Day

 A guy walks into a pub and orders a drink.  After a few more he needs to go to the loo.  He doesn't want anyone to steal his drink so he puts a sign on it saying,  "I spat in this beer, do not drink!".  After a few minutes he returns and there is another sign next to his beer saying, "So did I!"

"Lotta self-help tapes out there.
Got one called 'How to Handle Disappointment,
I got it home and the box was empty."
- Jonathan Droll
