Could someone help me?
 
Dear all,
Could anyone explain this joke:
A : Doctor, my son ate my pen! What should I do?
B : Use a pencil.
I couldnïŋ―t get the point. Hope everybody here can, and advise me.
Thank you very much.

My guess: If you lost your pen, use a pencil. (The joke being the doctor does not get the real issue.)

A. My son ate my pen, what should I do?
B. Use a pencil.
A. I don’t get the point.
B. Why? Is it not sharp enough?

It means nobody cares that the son swalled the pen ...I donīt get the point has double meaning...I donīt understand the joke, then the reply is funny...because the person doesnt explain what the joke is and ask her : do you need a sharpener...

What about this one?
This guy gets into a bar and asks the barman:
"Hey, will you please serve me 10 glasses of wine?"
The barman is dumbfounded, but he does serve the customer without saying a word.
The guy drinks all the wine up and asks again for some more:
"Hey, will you please serve mi 9 glasses of wine?"
Well, at this point the barman wants to ask why such a behaviour, but he just doesnīt...
Once more:
"Please, one more go with 8 glasses of wine, will ya?" 
The guy is obviously wasted, but he just drinks all the wine up, once more...
And again he asks for 7 glasses of wine, and then 6 and so on...
The barman unable to believe his eyes needs to ask why:
"Hey, fellow, why do you ask one less glass of wine each time you order, and why is that you have started with 10?
The customer is close to the puke and in a complete intoxication state, but he says in an unclear language:
"Cuz my doc...doc... HIP! said HIP! I have to reduce HIP! the dose of alcohol! HIP!"
