I love this joke- I heard it in high school or in college, and I can NEVER ever tell it right. I always end up forgetting part of the punch line, or enough of the joke for it not to be funny. So finally! Here it is, correct and complete:
A string walks into a bar and orders a drink. The bartender says, “Look, I can’t serve you, you’re a string.” So he walks outside, twists himself up tight, and pulls out his ends. Then he walks back into the bar. “Buddy,” the bartender says, “I already told you: I can’t serve a string.” And the string says, “I’m a frayed knot!” (Get it? “I’m afraid not?!”)
And so it goes.
