The Reverend Jones and his buddies were having a friendly game of poker that got out of hand. Stakes were mounting up quite high. One player loses $500, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table. The card players are worried that they’ll be blamed for the untimely death. The Reverend says, “I’ll handle it with discretion when I tell his wife. I don’t want to make a bad situation any worse than it is.”
Reverend Jones walks over to the wife’s house, knocks on the door, the wife answers, asks what he wants.
He says, “Your husband just lost $500 playing cards.”
She hollers, “TELL HIM TO DROP DEAD!”
The Reverend, sees his chance and says, “I’ll tell him.”
