    He thought he called him ‘whisky’ - a whisk is a type of short broom. The bartender is a regular broom, and didn’t appreciate being called short.

    The cowpoke said, “Whiskey, Broom!” The broom heard, “Wiskbroom.”

    Actually, we don’t have the full transcript. He may have said, ‘Hey f**ker, give me a whiskey,’ and then chickened out on repeating the order when confronted.

    While trying to figure it out, I looked at the labels on the taps.
    I couldn’t read the one on the left, but the one on the right is
    “Calvin & Hops”

    BTW, thanks for the whiskeybroom explanation.

    Cole Porter on the left.

    It’s Tuesday: Why must we all fear hello kitty??

    Not entirely sure, but I think the left tap says “Cole Porter”.

    @ Soup Dragon (5) - The answer to the Hello Kitty mystery can be found in this link to Bill’s CJA article.

    This comic makes no sense to me, but I would definitely drink Calvin & Hops.

    I like Stan’s response.

    The joke is that “whiskey” is supposed to be a negatively inflected slang for a sentient whisk broom. Sort of like if the cowboy had called the bartender “whitey.”

    If the cowboy’s nickname is Dusty there might be real trouble here.

    John, I think that’s the nickname for the broom’s helper, Dustpan.

    Arthur: The left tap says, I believe, “Cole Porter”

    Hey BarSweep! Whiskey here!

    Anyone see what the tap on the left says? ;-)
