Dumb question of the day

Overheard at the table next to us, in the local Irish pub, asked by a 20 something kind of hipster/skate boy cleaned up to be respectable at the office:

To the waitress: Do you have Guinness here?

I expected the whole room to fall silent at that and am shocked it didn't.

I guess the rest of the room was used to dumbass questions such as this.

Although I suspect it is not as dumbass as it used to be either. I have seen several Irish pubs both in NYC and NJ that have opted for Murphy's Irish Stoudt, or Smithwicks over Guiness.

They obviously didn't hear over the loud chatter.

Seems goofy, but I suppose it was a legit question.

I'd prefer a nice cream ale over a stout like Guiness any day. But that's just me.

Whoops. Here's that "N" I dropped.
