I played poker with a psychic last night. I won all his money. Shouldn't he have known that I was bluffing most of the time?
I called my poker-playing mother and told her that I’d lost all my money, my job, my self-respect, and that the wife had taken the kids, and left me. I said that I was giving up playing poker for good…she called me a quitter.
