Bar in Inverness

An Englishman is visiting Inverness on business, arriving an hour too early for his appointment he decides to have a drink in a local bar. He orders a pint of lager and a malt whisky. The barman said. "That will be 15 pence."The Englishman said, "That's cheap, how do make a profit?" The barman then explains that it is the Centenary of the brewery that owns the bar, and that for one week they have lowered the bar prices to what they were a hundred years ago.
The Englishman turns and looks round at the locals sitting down and notices that none of them are drinking.
He turns to the barman and says. "How come your locals aren't drinking at these prices?"
The barman replied. "They are waiting for five o-clock when Happy Hour starts!"
