A Poker Player in the Afterlife
A Poker Player in the Afterlife A professional poker player dies and his spirit passes into the afterlife. When he gets to the afterlife, he finds himself at the back of a miles-long line to get into Heaven. Drawing on his experience, the poker player immediately thinks of a way to get ahead of everyone else. He taps the old man ahead of him on the shoulder... "Want to make a bet while we wait?" The poker player asks. "If I can guess your last words in three tries, you have to let me cut ahead of you." The old man, having nothing better to do, agrees. Immediately, the poker player begins "reading" him like the pro player he is. He notices the elderly Asian man's shirt is open, exposing a pair of defibrillator marks. "Don't be silly, it's just indigestion." the poker player remarks. The old man looks a bit surprised, then steps aside, giving up his place in line. Next, the poker player taps on a redneck's shoulder. He makes the same bet, and the redneck also accepts. "This one's easy!" the poker player smirks, sizing up the bruised, bloody, grass stained redneck with the caved in skull. "Hold my beer!" Muttering profanities, the redneck begrudgingly steps aside and gives up his place in line. Riding the high of a hot streak, the poker player wastes no time tapping the next man ahead of him on the shoulder. He quickly makes the same bet, and is ecstatic when the agreement is made. "Okay, let's see..." The poker player studies the new mark carefully. He's a large imposing black man riddled with several bullet holes. The poker player holds his hand out like a gun. "You'll never take me alive!" The man shakes his head. Wrong. The experienced poker player strokes his chin. The guy is giving him nothing else to work with. The poker player holds the 'gun' sideways, makes a mean face, and shouts, "F*** the Police!" Wrong again. The poker player's getting frustrated, now. He's never been unable to read someone before. Finally, the poker player throws his hands in the air in pure frustration. "I'VE GOT NOTHING!" He shouts. "I GIVE UP!" The man steps aside.
