A man walked into a small pub and ordered three beers. Bartender was 36 , but he served that man three beers. The very next day that man ordered three beers again. This 37 several times and shortly alter the people of the town were 38 about the man who was ordering three beers at once.
A couple of 39 later, the bartender couldn't help asking, "Sorry, but could you explain why you order three beers all the time?" The man replied. " It seems 40 , isn't it? You see, my two brothers live 41 , one is in France and the other is in Italy. We have made a(n) 42 that every time we go to pub each of us will order extra(额外的) two beers and it will help keep up the family bond(纽红带).
Soon all the town heard about the man's answer. People were telling this story to newcomers or tourists and even 43 them to that pub to look at Three Beer Man.
However, one day the man came to the pub and ordered 44 two beers. The bartender served him with bad 45 . The very next day all the town prayed(祈祷) for the soul of one of the brothers.
When the man came to pub the next time and ordered two beers again, the bartender asked him，“I'm really sad for the death of your dear brother. "The man was shocked for a moment and then replied, “Well, my two brothers are alive and well. I have just promised myself to give up drinking.”
