Seven retired Jewish Floridian fellows were playing
poker in the condo clubhouse when Meyer 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, but standing up. At the end of the
game, Finkelstein looks around and asks, "So, who's gonna tell
his vife?" They cut the cards. Goldberg picks the low card and
has to carry the news. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle,
don't 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." Goldberg goes over to Meyer's condo
and knocks on the door. The wife answers through the door
and asks what he wants. Goldberg declares: "Your husband
just lost $500 in a poker game and is afraid to come home."
"Tell him to drop dead!" yells the wife.
"I'll go tell him." says Goldberg.
