Why did the horse bring a ladder to the bar?
Because the drinks were on the house!!

Due to the sanitary issues surrounding this, we would never see this in the States. Which is a shame because I would love to be able to brag that I drank a damn horse under the table.

The secret that nobody knows is that horses can't hold their liquor. Buncha lightweights I tell ya. Couple of shots and they are staggering around, picking fights and calling everybody's mother a mule.

Zebras on the other hand, man, those fuckers can drink.

Here's an old one that has nothing to do with horses.

A rabbi walks into a bar with a frog on his shoulder, and the bartenders all like "Holy moly, where'd you get that thing??"

And the frog responds "Brooklyn. They're all over the place."

It wouldn't happen in London, either, you know. I'll bet it can happen in a small town out west, maybe out up in Montana....

A horse walks into a bar carrying a pair of jumper cables in its mouth. The bartender eyes the horse warily, then tells it, "You can come in—but don't start anything."

...and orders a beer. The bartender thinks to himself, "how smart can a horse be?" and says to the horse, "one beer? that will be $10" So, the horse pays up and settles down to drink the beer. After a while, the bartender gets bored and wanders back over to the horse. He says,"we don't get many horses in here." The horse replies, "I'm not surprised, at $10 a beer."

The best part of this article:

"'It was a hot day when the horse came in,' said Mrs. Gray, 'and I was shocked at first because I have never run a pub before.'"

Other regular customer: "You're surprised? I take it you've never run a pub before. Y'see, Mrs. Gray, this sort of thing happens all the time in pubs. Just one of those things you learn as a pub owner."

Excuse me a sec. I've gotta go see a man about a horse. :)

koeselitz - my first thought exactly.

A man walks into a bar with a horse. They proceed to order drinks, and continue drinking heavily for hours on end. Finally the horse lies down on the floor and passes out. The man asks the bartender for the bill and makes ready to leave, and the bartender says "Hey, you can't leave that lyin' on the floor of my bar!"
And the man responds "That's not a lion, that's a horse!"

Yes, that joke does not work as well in print as told aloud.
Yes, it's still awful when told aloud.
Yes, it's usually told with a giraffe instead of a horse, at least as I've heard it.
Yes, I apologize.

So this pony walks into a bar and says: “I’d like a beer please.
And the bartender says “What?”

And the bartender says “I can’t hear you, you’re going to have to speak up.”
And the pony says: “ I’m sorry, I’m a little horse.

...where 17th century western philosopher Rene Descartes is ordering a beer. The bartender hands the horse a martini as soon as he walks in ignoring the philosopher. Descartes says “But I was here first!”
And the bartender says: “Yes, but I never put Descartes before the horse.”

A horse walks into a bar and becomes panicked by the crowd, smoke and noise. His bowels empty and he begins running into the walls, falling over tables and bucking wildly. Several women are seriously injured.

Eventually the horse cuts his leg on some broken juke box glass and has a seizure.

Unfortunately I was not present when one of the Kereopa men rode his horse into the public bar of the Harbourview Hotel in Raglan. History does not record whether he or the horse were served. But I am assured that this happened, and I can confirm that I was very, very drunk there not long after.

The article mentions "pickled onion crisps" - what English food(?) s that? I normally think of an onion crisp as an "onion ring" (raw onion ring dipped in batter and fried). Pickled?

stbalbach - an onion ring is, thankfully, a fairly universal concept and one we should all celebrate. A "crisp" in the UK and Ireland is a "potato chip" in the US.

That is all very well, except for the awful abuse that the poor spud is subject to on its way to becoming a crisp. Now we might get the odd Sour Cream 'n' Onion or Extra Cheeze varieties here in the US, but usually it is a breeze to find your good old salted potato chip - ridged or unridged - sitting there in the snack aisle.

Over beyond across the pond, however, things are very different. Sinister almost.

The pickled onion to which you refer is just another flavo(u)r of our beloved snack. There is, I think, a law in the UK and Ireland (not so stringently enforced in England, but MAN those Irish are strict) that regular salted crisps (chips to you, matey) are banned. You cannot find them, purchase them, or even dream about them. All crisps must be flavou..ok... flavored with cheese & onion, roast beef and mustard, peking duck, smokey bacon or somesuch nonsense.

I repeat. There shall be no regular salted crisps.

I have recently been able to purchase salt and vinegar chips right here in New York State! Think of the children!

Attempting to mollify Descartes, the bartender asked if he would like some pickled onion crisps with his pint. I think not, said Descartes, and disappeared.

these two racehorces are seated at a bar drinking beers. one turns to the other and says "maughan! the craziest shit! today i was at the belmont, in the 4th race and i got this weird tingling sensation in my spine and in my tail and i shot ahead of the field and won by a nose!" the other horse looks over and replies "sal! that's fucking crazy! i was down at the stakes just the other day and got this weird tingling sensation in my spine, my tail and my legs and i shot ahead of everybody and won by a whole length!"

a greyhound at the end of the bar, drinking a martini, who's been listening says "holy shit! you guys! i was at the track the other day running and i got this weird tingling sensation in my tail, my spine, my legs -- right up to the tip of my nose -- and i shot ahead and won by a mile! i almost got the fucking rabbit!"

and the one horse looks at the other and says:

An American tourist was driving in County Kerry, when his motor stopped. He got out to see if he could locate the trouble. A voice behind him said, "The trouble is the carburetor." He turned around and only saw an old horse. The horse said again, "It's the carburetor that's not working." The American nearly died with fright, and dashed into the nearest pub, had a large whiskey, and told Murphy the bartender what the horse had said to him.

Murphy said, "Well, don't pay any attention to him, he knows nothing about cars anyway."

The Lone Ranger and Tonto, hot and exhausted from the trail, walk into a bar and sit down to have a beer. After a few minutes a cowboy walks in and, asks “Who owns the big white horse tied up out front?”

Expecting a fight, the Lone Ranger stands and says, “That’s my horse, Silver. Who are you and why do you want to know?”

The cowboy shrugs and says, “I’m just the man telling you that your horse is near death and needs some water.”

After thanking the cowboy, the Lone Ranger rushes outside with Tonto. Sure enough, Silver is not looking too good. The Lone Ranger gets a bucket of water and pours some of it over the horse and gives him the rest to drink. Feeling the hot stale air, he asks Tonto if he’d run around Silver for a while to create a breeze. Tonto replies, “Can do, Kemosabe,” and starts running in circles around Silver.

With Silver looking a little better and thinking there wasn’t much else he could do, the Lone Ranger ambles back into the bar and sits down.

A couple minutes later another cowboy comes in and asks, “Who owns the big white horse tied up outside?”

“That’d be me, and my horse’s name is Silver. What’s wrong now?”

The cowboy replies, “Mister, you left your injun running.”
