After each Martini, Murphy would remove the olives and place them in a jar.
He kept this up for over an hour, by which time he was rather sozzled as you might imagine, and Patrick, the bartender was puzzled.
When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, Murphy payed up and started to leave.
“S’cuse me”, said Patrick, who was puzzled over what Murphy had done, “what was that all about?”
“Nothin’, said Murphy, “my wife just sent me out for a jar of olives!”
