Beats the odds
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
A man walked into a sports bar around 9:58 p.m. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV.
The 10 p.m. news was coming on. The news crew was covering the story of a man on the ledge of a large building preparing to jump.
The blonde looked at the man and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”
The man said, “You know, I bet he will.”
The blonde replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.”
The man placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, “You’re on!”
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death.
The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her $20 to the man, saying, “Fair’s fair. Here’s your money.”
The man replied, “I can’t take your money. I saw this earlier on the 6 p.m. news, and so I knew he would jump.”
The blonde replied, “I did too, but I didn’t think he’d do it again.”
