Chapter 90 of the book Short
a dribble
"Fat Hand" by Bill Schott





















"Hey, Carl, guess what?"

"What."

"My wife lost a hundred pounds of fat."

"I would say she divorced you, but she'd still have more than a hundred pounds of ugly fat left."

"Funny. No, she lost it all in a poker game."

"How is that possible?"

"She played to an inside straight."

Author Notes
Image from Google

The punch line is meant to be funny due to its non sequitur appearance, totally abandoning the story of weight loss for the reason for losing at poker. I kill myself sometimes. By the evidence from review, this is apparently one of those times.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
