Were You Gambling1?


A priest, a minister and a rabbi2 are playing poker when the police raid3 the game.
“Father,” asks the officer, “were you gambling?”
“Of course not,” says the priest after saying a silent prayer for forgiveness.
  “Pastor, what about you?”
  After an appeal4 to heaven, he answers, “No, sir.”
  Turning to the rabbi, the officer asks, “Rabbi, were you gambling?”
  Shrugging his shoulder, the rabbi replies, “With whom?”

The Secret for A Long Life

A woman walked up to a little old man rocking in a chair on his porch. “I couldn’t help noticing how happy you look,” she said. “What’s your secret for a long and happy life?”
  “I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day,” he said. “I also drink a case of whiskey a week, eat fatty foods and never exercise.”
  “That’s amazing,” the woman said. “How old are you?”
