Cutting Down

A man walked into a bar and ordered three gin and tonics. Every day, he returned at the same time and placed the same order. After a week, the bartender said, "Sir, if you don't mind my asking, why do you always order three drinks?"

"Well," he said. "I just moved here from Toledo, and each of my two brothers told me, 'When you get there, have a drink for me.'"

A month later, the man ordered two drinks instead of three. The bartender asked, "I don't want to pry, but did something happen to one of your brothers?"

"No, why do you ask?" the man said.

The bartender said, "Because you're only having two drinks."

The man answered, "That's because I quit drinking.
