it says “no beer”.

the old armenian joke was related to empty petrol stations of 80ies. one comes to the petrol station and sees a paper stating “no petrol at all”. he asks, why did they write this “at all”? they answer, because every person who comes asks us - “no petrol at all?”.

so they had to write “no beer at all” (:
