Old man Murphy had worked down at the brewery for years, but one day he just
wasn't paying attention and he tripped on the walkway and fell into the beer
vat and drowned. The foreman thought it should be his job to inform the
widow Murphy of her old man's death. He showed up at the front door and rang
the bell. When she came to the door, he said, "I'm sorry to tell you, but
poor old Murphy passed away at work today when he fell into the vat and
drowned." She wept and covered her face with her apron and after a time,
between sobs, she asked, "Tell me, did he suffer?" "I don't think so," said
the foreman, "He got out three times to go to the men's room."
