Form Practice Story 3
The Odd Duck
A duck named Fred walked into a pub in London called the Rusty Bucket. He sat down at the bar. The bartender, Harry,asked him what he would like to drink. "Do you have any grapes?" Fred replied.
"No, we don't sell grapes." Harry said. "But I have grape juice."
"No thanks," Fred sighed and waddled out of the bar.
The next day, Fred came back and sat on the same stool. "Got any grapes?" he asked Harry.
No, I told you yesterday, we don't have grapes." Harry grumbled. Fred got down off his stool and waddled out.
The next day at the same time., Fred waddled back in and bellied up to the bar. Before Harry could say a word, he said "Got any grapes?"
"I told you twice, no grapes here. If you ask me one more time, I'll nail your beak to the bar!" Harry shouted. Fred just shrugged and waddled out.
The next day Harry was ready. The second Fred stepped into the bar, he shouted "Do you remember what I told you yesterday?"
Fred nodded and said, "Do you have any nails?"
"No, why why are you asking about nails now? You are the oddest duck in the world." Harry answered.
Fred replied, "In that case, Got any grapes?"
