One afternoon, when the bartender was making daiquiris for the Seven Dwarfs, he realized that he only had enough hazelnut extract to make six daiquiris, so he decided to make the seventh daiquiri using hickory extract. When the dwarves arrived at the bar, each dwarf took a sip of the daiquiri he had been served. Six dwarves were satisfied with their orders, but the seventh said, "Are you sure this is a hazelnut daiquiri?" "I'm afraid it isn't," said the bartender. "It's a hickory daiquiri, Doc."
