The Bet

This is a must read! Hope I'm that smart when I get old!
A little old lady went into the Bank of Canada oneday,
carrying a bag of money. She insisted that she must speak
with thepresident of the bank to open a savings account
because, "It's a lot ofmoney!" After much hemming and
hawing, the bank staff finally usheredher into the president
's office (the customer is always right)!The bank
president then asked her how much she would like todeposit
. She replied, "$165,000!" and dumped the cash out of her
bagonto his desk. The president was of course curious as
to how she cameby all this cash, so he asked her, "Ma'am, I'
m surprised you're carryingso much cash around.Where did you
get this money?" The old lady replied, "I make bets."The
president then asked, "Bets? What kind of bets?" The old
womansaid, "Well, for example, I'll bet you $25,000 that
your balls aresquare.""Ha!" laughed the president, "That's a
stupid bet. You can never win thatkind of bet!" The old
lady challenged, "So, would you like to take mybet?" "Sure,
" said the president, "I'll bet $25,000 that my balls are
notsquare!"The little old lady than said, "Okay, but since
there is a lot of moneyinvolved, may I bring my lawyer with
me tomorrow at 10:00 A.M. as awitness?" "Sure!" replied the
confident president.
That night, the president got very nervous about the bet
and spent a longtime in front of a mirror checking his
balls, turning from side to side,again and again. He
thoroughly checked them out until he was sure thatthere was
absolutely no way his balls were square and that he would
win thebet.
The next morning, at precisely 10:00 A.M., the little old
lady appearedwith her lawyer at the president's office. She
introduced the lawyer to thepresident and repeated the bet
$25,000 says the president's balls aresquare!" The
presidentagreed with the bet again and the old lady asked
him to drop his pants sothey could all see.The president
complied. The little old lady peered closely at his balls
andthen asked if she could feel them.
"Well, okay," said the president, "$25,000 is a lot of
money, so I guessyou should be absolutely sure
Just then, he noticed that the lawyer was quietly banging
his head againstthe wall. The president asked the old
lady, "What the hell's thematter with your lawyer?"She
replied, "Nothing, except I bet him $100,000 that at 10:00
A.M. today,I'd have the Bank of Canada's president's balls
in my hand.
The origination of this letter is unknown, but it brings
good luck toeveryone who passes it on. The one who breaks
the chain will have badluck.
