A bartender in an upscale Washington DC Bar is sitting behind the bar on a typical day, when the door bursts open and in come four exuberant senators. They come up to the bar, order five bottles of champagne and ten glasses, take their order over and sit down at a large table. The corks are popped, the glasses are filled and they begin toasting and chanting, "51 days, 51 days, 51days!"
Soon, three more senators arrive, take up their drinks and the chanting grows. "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!" Two more senators show up and soon their voices are joined in raising the roof. "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!"
Finally, the tenth senators comes in with a picture under his arm. He walks over to the table, sets the picture in the middle and the tableerupts. Up jumps the others, they begin dancing around the table, exchanging high-five's, all the while chanting "51 days, 51 days, 51days!"
The bartender can't contain her curiosity any longer, so she walks over to the table.
There in the center is a beautifully framed child's puzzle of the Cookie Monster. When the frenzy dies down a little bit, the bartender asks one of the senators, "What's all the chanting and celebration about?"
The senator who brought in the picture pipes in, "Everyone thinks that senators are dumb and they make fun of us. So, we decided to set the record straight. Ten of us got together, bought that puzzle and put it together." He said, and pull out the box the puzzle came in and continued "See there on the side of the box, it says 2-4 years, but we put it together in a mere 51 days!"
