The cost of perestroika

A Russian walks into a Soviet bar and orders a drink. "That will be one ruble," says the bartender.

The customer explodes: "One ruble! Last week it was only fifty kopeks!"

"Well," replies the bartender, "it is fifty kopeks for the beer, and fifty kopeks for the perestroika."

Reluctantly the customer forks over the ruble ... only to have the bartender hand him back fifty kopeks, explaining: "We are out of beer."
