The guys were playing poker. Pete lost $1,000 on a single hand, clutched his chest and died. Realizing that Pete’s wife needed to know, Frank agreed to tell her. “Be discreet,” his friends told him.

Frank went to Pete’s home and knocked on the door. When Pete’s wife answered, Frank told her that Pete had lost $1,000 playing poker and was afraid to come home.

Pete’s wife said, “Tell him to drop dead.” Frank says, “O.K. I’ll tell him.”

She began coolly, ‘Yes, your honor. I figured that at 97, if he could still have sex…he could also probably fly.”
