A Swede was drinking in a bar on a Friday night in Copenhaagen when a Danish business colleague suggested to him:
- "I'll give you 20 euros if you let me smash ten beer bottles on your head."
The Swede thought for a while and finally agreed, mainly because of the peer pressure. The Dane smashed the first bottle on the Swede's head, then the second and so on, but he stopped after smashing nine bottles.
- "So, when are you going to smash the tenth bottle?," asked the Swede, bracing himself for the final blow.
- "Foolish Swede," the Dane replied, "then I would have to give you that 20 euros."
