Quiz me this...

A guy walks into a bar and orders a drink. As the bartender pours, the customer notices a picture on the wall behind the bar. He asks the bartender who it is.

"I'm glad you asked," said the bartender. "Brothers and sisters, I have none... but that man's father is my father's son."

"Ah! I know exactly who it is," said the customer. He slammed his Shirley Temple and left.

Multi part question:

A - What are the ingredients of a Shirley Temple?

B - How do you make an origami sheep?

C - Who is the subject in the picture?

First to correctly answer wins the origami sheep. No fair Googling it, I'll know. Gary, you're disqualified since I've told you this one.

A. Ginger Ale and grenadine
B. You lead him?
C. I

Oh yeah Dave, Can you tell me the answer in your "radio voice"....that would be so cool.

So, it could be his own son, or his nephew?

I can make an origami crane to keep the sheep company.

And Shirley Temple had THE BEST HAIR. Until puberty.

Okay it's quite early but I'll try this ...

1. Shirley Temple: depends where you are ordering it. New York City: coke with grenadine. Las Vegas and New England: most often, 7Up and grenadine but sometimes ginger ale with grenadine. Ghetto: coke with a cherry (stem still on) tossed in. (ps - when I was bartending, a Naked Shirley Temple was a glass of soda)

2. I'll have to consult my "How to Make Origami Sheep" book before I can answer this. It's been years and I've completely forgotten how.

3. Pretty sure the picture would be the bartender's son. At first I thought it was a picture of the bartender himself, but then after careful consideration (and five full minutes in the small room), I had an awakening.

(Alternate way to make a Shirley Temple: Take Mr. and Mrs. Temple, get them a cheap hotel room, light some candles and put on some Marvin Gaye tunes)

1. Get Shirley to spread her legs.

2. It's like making an oragami goat, only you need more hair.

3. I buy into: the bartender's son.

It is himself in the picture!

1. 12 oz. ginger ale. 1 dash grenadine. Garnish with maraschino cherry and pineapple on a chintzy plastic sword.

2. Dose a 12 year old Japanese girl's Shirley Temple with ketamine. Leave her in a room paneled with mirrors and a large stack of white paper. You'd be surprised what'll happen.

3. The guy's son.

1.Ginger ale, dash of grenadine syrup in a highball glass garnished with a slice of pineapple and a cherry on a stick.
2. Get my husband to make it for you. He does that stuff all the time.
3. The bartender's son

1. Temple. Is that rhyming slang for something? As in "He was cazing rash at a toodist bemple, with nudist buns. But... he's a sponagamous mouse. Just ask his tife, Wipper."
2. It's just the same as an origami penguin, but use white paper. Spinning girl was on the right track.
3. The son.

I hope this helps.

I believe the Shirley Temple has many different versions, I like them with vodka and lots of it.

As for origami sheep, shit I don't know.

But the photo is of the bartender's son.
