"Good afternoon, my good barkeep, a pint of Less if you please," said the old man as he entered the tavern.

"Less? Never heard of it," replied the barman.

"Oh, come now surely you have," he persisted.

"No sorry, we certainly don't stock it. What is it anyway? Some foreign beer?"

"Well I'm not sure," admitted the man. "It was my doctor who mentioned it. He said I should drink less."
