THE LITTLE OLD LADY AND THE BET
A little old lady went into the Bank of Canada one day, carrying a bag
of money. She insisted that she must speak with the president of the
bank to open a savings account because, "It's a lot of money!" After
much hemming and hawing, the bank staff finally ushered her into the
president's office (the customer is always right!).The bank president
then asked her how much she would like to deposit. She replied,
"165,000!"and dumped the cash out of her bag onto his desk. The
president was of course curious as to how she came by all this cash,
so he asked her, "Ma'am, I'm surprised you're carrying so much cash
around. Where did you get this money?" The old lady replied, "I make

said, "Well, for example, I'll bet you 25,000 that your balls are
"Ha!" laughed the president, "That's a stupid bet. You can never win

and again. He thoroughly checked them out until he was sure that there
was absolutely no way his balls were square and that he would win the
The next morning, at precisely 10:00 am, the little old lady appeared
with her lawyer at the president's office. She introduced the lawyer
to the president and repeated the bet: "25,000 says the president's
balls are square!"
The president agreed with the bet again and the old lady asked him to
drop his pants so they could all see.
The president complied. The little old lady peered closely at his
balls and then asked if she could feel them. "Well, Okay," said the
president, "25, 000 is a lot of money, so I guess you should be
Just then, he noticed that the lawyer was quietly banging his head
against the wall.
The president asked the old lady, "What the hell's is the matter with
She replied, "Nothing, except I bet him 100,000 that at 10:00 am
today, I'd have The Bank of Canada's president's balls in my hand."
