Grammar Grins

Publisher McSweeney’s has posted a list of seven bar jokes involving grammar. An example: “A dangling modifier walks into a bar. After finishing a drink, the bartender asks it to leave.” View the whole list here, and see if you can find the joke that contains an apparently unintentional error.

Hat tips: Emily Grant; Andy Starkis

Since "drinking" is not being used as a noun, it is not a gerund.
