Murphy decides to boost business at his pub by having a special offer. He puts a sign over a keg of beer saying, "All you can drink for 5 pounds!" When O'Leary comes in the pub, he sees the sign and immediately asks for a drink from the keg. He hands over a 5 pound note and Murphy hands him a pint of ale. The beer is fantastic and O'Leary soon drains the glass. He hands the glass back for a refill, but Murphy shakes his head. "Sorry," he says, "That'll be another 5 pounds." "What?" exclaims O'Leary. "But that sign says, 'All you can drink for 5 pounds.'" "I know," says Murphy. "And you see the glass I gave you?" "Yes," replies O'Leary. Murphy continues, "Well that is all you can drink for 5 pounds."
