A Deadly Game of Poker
- Monday, June 28, 2004
Six, retired Floridians, play high stakes poker in the condo clubhouse.
A member of the group, Meierwitz, loses $5000 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table.
Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five continue playing standing up.
Finkelstein looks around and asks, "So, who's gonna' tell his wife?"
They draw straws. Goldberg picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, not to make a bad situation any worse.
"Discreet? I'm the most discreet person you'll ever meet. Discretion is my middle name....leave it to me"
Goldberg goes over to the Meierwitz apartment, knocks on the door. The wife answers and asks what he wants.
Goldberg declares, "Your husband just lost $5000 playing poker, and is afraid to come home."
"Tell him to drop dead!" says the wife.
"I'll go tell him." says Goldberg.
