Once upon a time an Irish man and an English man had a bottle of wine, and they said, whoever would be up first in the morning would get the bottle of wine. They went to bed that night and the Irishman was up first in the morning and he drank the bottle of wine. Then the English man got up and he went over to the bottle.

The Irish man asked him what was he looking for, and the English man answered, nothing, and the Irish man told him that he would get it in the bottle.
