An American tourist who was visiting Canada decided to celebrate the 4th of July by getting stone drunk.
He became obnoxious and disorderly, was arrested and was later hauled into court for disturbing the peace.
“How do you plead?” the Judge asked.
“Not guilty!” replied the accused.
“How can you plead not guilty? You are drunker than a skunk,” the judge said.
“Well, you see, it’s like this, your honor”, the man said. “I was only following orders. When I got into town, there was this big sign that said, DRINK CANADA DRY. And that’s what I did.”
