I don't know, the first two don't look like beer drinkers to me. Probably only take one beer to get to a false premise, and 4 beers later, no means yes.

Descartes went into a bar.
The barman asked "Do you want a drink?"
Descartes replied "I don't think so" – and disappeared.

Well, two of them accidentally arrived at the same time and the other one was actually looking for the toilet....

Two ACT candidates walked into a bar, and so did a third who will be named later...

...but more ACT candidates are walking out of the bar than were in the first place.

I need a beer.
