A shooting club was holding a competition. The winner was to get a somewhat ugly trophy, the second-placed shooter – a crate of champagne.

By the end of the final round, two shooters were tied for first place, so they were told to do a tiebreaker round – 5 shots at maximum distance. To keep things more dramatic, they had to shoot at the same time.


After both had stopped firing and were awaiting the results, one shooter turned to his rival and said with a little smile: “I’m sorry, pal. I put all five shots in the wall.”

“I’m sorry, too,” replied the other, “because I put all of mine into your target.”
