A Man and His Horse Get Some Rest

A man walked into a bank in Berlin. It was the area that held the cash machine. And that's where the man went to sleep. He brought an animal into the bank too. Which explains how an ATM customer walked in to find the sleeping man and his horse. The man admitted he'd been drinking. As for the horse, he said — of course — there was no hitching post outside.

He brought an animal into the bank too, which explains how an ATM customer walked in to find a sleeping man and his horse. The man admitted he'd been drinking. And as for the horse, he said, of course, there was no hitching post outside.
