Poker at its Best

Considering the current craze for poker (ESPN apparently considers it a sport now...) I thought this joke was well timed:

Two couples were playing poker one evening. John accidentally dropped some cards on the floor. When he bent down under the table to pick them up, he noticed Bill's wife, Sue, wasn't wearing any underwear under her dress.

Shocked by this, John, upon trying to sit back up again, hit his head on the table and emerged red-faced. Later John went to the kitchen to get some refreshments. Bill's wife followed and asked, "Did you see something that you liked under there?"

Surprised by her boldness, John courageously admitted that, well indeed he did.

She said, "Well, you can have it, but it will cost you $500."

After taking a minute or two to assess the financial and moral costs of this offer, John confirms that he is interested.

She tells him that since her husband Bill works Friday afternoons, and as John doesn't, he should be at he house around 2pm Friday afternoon.

When Friday rolled around John showed up at Bill's house at 2pm sharp and after paying Sue the agreed sum of $500 they went to the bedroom and closed their transaction, as agreed. John then quickly dressed and left.

As usual Bill came home from work at 6pm and upon entering the house asked his wife abruptly, "Did John come by the house this afternoon?"

With a lump in her throat Sue answered, "Why yes, he did stop by for a few minutes this afternoon."

Her heart nearly skipped a beat when her husband curtly asked, "And did he give you $500?"

In terror she assumed that somehow he had found out and after mustering her best poker face, replied, "Well, yes, in fact he did give me $500."

Bill, with a satisfied look on his face, surprised his wife by saying, "Good, I was hoping he did. John came by the office this morning and borrowed $500 from me. He promised me he'd stop by our house this afternoon on his way home and pay me back."

Now THAT, my friends, is a poker player!!
