Good one, Celadon! A classic.
Perhaps it's time to start new threads: one for posers, which we haven't seen for a while, & one for jokes.
Here's one I heard today:
A fellow wakes up one morning & a little voice in his head says, "Go to the bank."
He ignores it at first, but it keeps repeating, "Go to the bank," so he finally does.
The little voice says, "Take out $10,000."
He thinks this is nuts, but the voice persists, so eventually he complies.
The voice says, "Fly to Las Vegas."
The guy is somewhat reluctant, but he gets an inkling where this might be going.
In Vegas, the voice says, "Go to Caesar's Palace."
At the casino, the voice says, "Buy $10,000 worth of chips."
Again, he's a little squeamish, but the voice persists, so he does.
"Go to the slots, third one on the right." He sits down in front of it, a high-bet machine.
The voice says, "Play the top bet." He does that & hits the jackpot: $100,000 !
At this point he wants to quit & go home, but the voice says, "Go to the roulette table."
Figuring he might win even more, as the voice was right, off he goes.
At first, the voice is quiet, then it says, "Put everything on 33 black." Everything? "Everything !"
So he does & pushes his huge pile of chips onto 33 black.
The croupier spins the wheel & rolls the ball. A moment of silence as everyone watches.
The wheel slows & the ball spirals down, bounces a few times & lands in ... 16 red, right beside 33 black.
The little voice says, "F**K
There might be a moral in there.
