  • Abbott and Costello

    Friend: "Hey Jim, how is that online poker treating you?"

    Jim: "Pretty good, friend."

    Friend: "Don't you do that poker school league?"

    Jim: "I sure do."

    Friend: "Do you enjoy it?"

    Jim: "No, I only enter those to kill time."

    Friend: "You only enter them because you are bored?"

    Jim: "No, I enter them for the leaderboard money at the end of the month."

    Friend: "Ooh, they pay you at the end of the month if you play well?"

    Jim: "No, they pay me at the end of the month if I don't play."

    Friend: "They pay you to not play? Then why do you keep entering them?"

    Jim: "Because I want that leaderboard money."

    Friend: "I thought you said they pay you if you don't play."

    Jim: "That's right. "

    Friend : "Why would they pay you for not playing?"

    Jim: "They say smart players do not risk their tourney lives early."

    Friend: "So you do enter those tourneys!"

    Jim: "Yeah, I told you that."

    Friend: "OK, I was confused. I thought you said you didn't play in them."

    Jim: "Oh no, you don't want to play poker in those tourneys."

    Friend: "Then which tourneys are you entering??"

    Jim: "The poker school league."

    Friend: "And that is the same league with the leaderboard money??"

    Jim: "Correct."

    Friend: "And they pay you to not play poker in them?"

    Jim: "Correct again."

    Friend: "But you enter them anyway?"

    Jim: "Well, you have to enter in them."

    Friend: "I thought you said they pay you to not play in those tourneys"

    Jim: "Right. I am glad you are finally starting to understand!"

    That was a week ago and my friend is still scratching his head over that conversation. Best of luck to everybody this month!
