“Who can drink 20 liters of gasoline?"/"Jerry can.”

"Jerrycan” (a liquid container) is sometimes given “Jerry can” riddles. “Do you know who can drink 20L of water? Jerry can” was posted on Twitter by Kester Tay on April 21, 2013.

“Who can drink 2 liters of gasoline?"/"Jerry can” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on February 11, 2020. The “20 liters” went down to “2 liters,” probably by mistake.


Wikipedia: Jerrycan
A jerrycan (also written as jerry can or jerrican) is a robust liquid container made from pressed steel. It was designed in Germany in the 1930s for military use to hold 20 litres (4.4 imp gal; 5.3 US gal) of fuel. The development of the jerrycan was a significant improvement on earlier designs, which required tools and funnels to use, and it contained many innovative features for convenience of use and robustness. After widespread use by both Germany and the Allies during the Second World War, today similar designs are used worldwide for fuel and water containers, some of which are also produced in plastic.
