Friday Wisdom – Gambling

I do live in a town with casinos so here are some insights on gambling.

Gambling is a tax on people who are bad at math.

Why don’t pirates play poker? They’re always stand on the deck.

I played strip poker the other night – played my socks off.

I got asked to leave the casino last week. They said I was eating chips.

Why did the vampire leave the poker game? Some one raised the stakes.

How do you make a million gambling? Start with 10 million.

Why do large maps always lose at poker? They keep folding.

Don’t gamble in the jungle – too many cheetahs.

An American in London won 2,000 pounds and was heard saying, “Wow that’s a ton of money.”

What did the blackjack dealer say to the old deck of cards? I can’t deal with you.

The best chance of getting a Royal Flush in a casino is in the bathroom.

  2. Ha! Good ones, all. And you’re right about the most probable location for a Royal Flush. I’ve never seen one happen with a deck of cards. šŸ˜‰

    “How do you make a million gambling? Start with 10 million.” is just so true. I am so glad that I don’t gamble, it is such an obviously stupid thing to do. Slot machines in England can be programmed to keep up to 85% of the money going in. I certainly wouldn’t want to have an operation with a 15% chance of survival!

    • They do the same thing here. In Los Vegas, they started building the resorts with rides and shows because people are catching on to the downside of gambling.

    I think the line about gambling being a tax on people bad at math is excellent. So true! It can be kind of fun once in a while, though. šŸ™‚
