Newfie's “Drop Dead” Poker Game
Six retired Newfies were playing poker in the condo clubhouse when Wally loses
$500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table.
Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five continue playing standing up.
Shamus looks around and asks, “So, who's gonna' tell his wife?”
They draw straws. Harry picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, and not to make a bad situation any worse.
“Discreet? I'm the most discreet person you'll ever meet. Discretion is my middle name. Leave it to me.”
Harry goes over to Wally's apartment and knocks on the door. The wife answers and asks what he wants. Harry answers, “Your husband just lost $500 and is afraid to come home.”
“Tell him to drop dead!” says the wife.
“I'll go tell him,” says Harry.
