John walked into a sports cafeteria around 9:58 PM.
He sat down next to a fool at the cafeteria.
And stared up at the TV.
The 10 PM news was coming on.
The news crew was covering the story of a man on the
ledge of a large building preparing to jump.
The fool looked at John and said,
“Do you think he’ll jump?”
John said, “You know, I bet he’ll jump.”
The fool replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.”
John placed a $20 bill on the bar and said,
Just as the fool placed his money on the bar,…
The guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building,
Falling to his death.
The fool was very upset,
But willingly handed his $20 to John.
“Fair’s fair. Here’s your money.”
John replied, “I can’t take your money.
I saw this earlier on the 5 PM news, So I knew he would jump.”
The fool replied, “I did, too,
But I didn’t think he’d do it again.”
John took the money.
