Two Men Walk Into a Bar...

The Story You Tell:
Two men go into a bar. They order exactly the same drink. The first man drinks his drink quickly and leaves. The second man drinks his drink slowly (over a number of hours). The second man dies. What happened?

The Solution:
The ice in the drinks was poisoned (note: both drinks were poisoned!). Since the first man drank quickly the ice didn't have time to melt and he wasn't affected. The second man's ice had time to melt, so by the time he finished his drink he was poisoned.
