50 dollar bet

Post by tequiza » Sun Jan 13, 2019 3:34 am

Jack, a handsome man, walked into a DC tavern around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at the bar and stared up at the TV just as the 10:00PM news came on.

The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump. Alexandria looked at Jack and said, "Do you think he'll jump?"

Jack says, "You know what, I bet he will."

Alexandria replied, "Well, I bet he won't."

Jack placed a $50 bill on the bar and said, "You're on!"

Just as she placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. She was very upset but handed her 50 dollars to Jack, saying, "Fair's fair... Here's your money."

Jack replied, "I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump."

Alexandria replies, "I did too; but I didn't think he'd do it again."

With that, Jack took the money and Alexandria headed back to her work at the US Congress.

That is easily one of the best I have heard in a very long time.

Pete, the problem with that joke is, in order to get a good laugh I need to find someone well enough informed to see the humor.
