A man walks into a bar – bar joke

“A man walks into a bar for the first time, and he’s sitting around drinking. Some of the old timers are telling jokes. One of them says “”Seventeen”” and the other old timers all roar with laughter. A little later, another of ’em says “”Thirty-Two”” and again, they all laugh and holler.

Well, the new guy can’t figure out what’s going on, so he asks one of the locals next to him “”What’re these old-timers doin’?”” The local says “”Well, they’ve been hangin’ around together so long they all know all the same jokes, so to save extra talkin’ they’ve given ’em all numbers.””

The new fellow says “”That’s mighty clever! I think I’ll try that.”” So he stands up and says in a loud voice “”Nineteen!”” Silence; everybody just looks at him, but nobody laughs.

Embarrassed, he sits down again, and asks the local fellow “”What happened? Why didn’t anyone laugh?””

The local says “”Well, son, ya just didn’t tell it right…””
