Beware of Poker Friends

Two couples were playing poker one evening. Jim accidentally dropped
some cards on the floor. When he bent down under the table to pick them
up, he noticed Les's wife,
Sue wasn't wearing any underwear under her dress! Shocked by this, Jim
upon trying to sit back up again, hit his head on the table and emerged

Later, Jim went to the kitchen to get some refreshments. Les's wife
followed and asked, 'Did you see anything that you like under there?'
Surprised by her boldness,
Jim admitted that, well indeed he did. She said, 'Well, you can have it
but it will cost you R1000.'

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

Sue told him that since her husband Les played golf Friday afternoons
and Jim didn't, Jim should be at her house around 2PM. Friday afternoon.

When Friday rolled around, Jim showed up at Les's house at 2PM. sharp
and after paying Sue the agreed sum of R1000 - they went to the bedroom
and closed their transaction, as agreed.

Jim quickly dressed and left.

As usual, Les came home from golf at 6pm. And upon arriving, asked his
wife: 'Did Jim 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 R1000?'

Sue, using her best poker face, replied, Well, yes, in fact he did give
me R1000.
Les, with a satisfied look on his face, surprised his wife by saying,
'He came by the golf club this morning and borrowed R1000 from me. He
promised he'd stop by our
house this afternoon on his way home and pay me back.'

Now THAT, my readers, is a poker player ...
