Poker player

Six retired Jewish men were playing poker in the Day Care Center when Levine loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table.

Finkelstein looks around and suggests, let’s cut…low card has to go tell his wife.” They agree. Goldberg picks a deuce.They tell him to use good judgment, be discreet and be gentle. Don’t make a bad situation any worse.

“Discreet”? he asked. “I’ll be the most discreet person you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name. Just leave it to me.”
So, Goldberg goes over to the Levine’s bungalow and knocks on the door.

The wife answers and asks what he wants. Goldberg, in a soft, gentle voice says, “Oy, Mrs. Levine, I’m so sorry to tell you …your husband just lost $500 in our poker game tonight.”

“Tell him to drop dead!’ she yells.

“That’s the other thing I was going to tell you…he already dropped.”
