Gamblin’ Granny (joke)

A little old lady carried a big bag of money into the Chase Manhattan Bank and insisted that she must speak with the president of the bank to open a savings account because, “It’s a lot of money!” Eventually she argued her way into the president’s office. He asked how much she wanted to deposit. She replied, “$165,000!” and dumped that much cash onto his desk. “Ma’am, I’m surprised that you carry so much cash. Where did you get this money?” The old lady replied, “I like to make bets.” The president then asked, “Bets? What kind of bets?” The old woman said, “Well, I’ll give you an example. I’ll bet you $25,000 that your balls are square.” “Ha!” laughed the president, “That’s a stupid bet. You can never win that kind of bet!” The old lady challenged, “So? Are you going to accept my bet?” “Sure,” said the president, “I’ll bet you $25,000 that my balls are not square!” She said, “It’s a deal. But since there’s so much money involved, is it okay if I come back tomorrow with my lawyer to serve as a witness?” “Sure!” replied the confident banker. He had the bet in the bag! The next morning the woman and her lawyer appeared and she repeated the bet: “$25,000 says this man’s balls are square!” The president nodded and the old lady asked him to drop his pants so everyone could witness. He did. She reached over and softly felt his balls. Her lawyer slapped his forehead! “What wrong with your lawyer?” he asked. She replied, “Oh, nothing. It’s just that yesterday afternoon I bet him $100,000 that by noon today, I’d hold the Chase Manhattan Bank president’s balls in my hand. And I win!”
