The Art of Discretion

Six guys are playing poker when Smith loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest, and drops dead at the table.

Roberts looks around and asks, “Now, who is going to tell his wife?”

They draw straws. Rippington, who is always a loser, picks the short one. The others advise him to be discreet and not to make a bad situation any worse.

“Gentlemen! Discreet? I'm the most discreet man you’ll ever meet! Leave it to me.”

Rippington walks over to the Smith house and knocks on the door. Smith’s wife answers, and asks what he wants.

Rippington says, “Your husband just lost $500 playing cards.”

She hollers, “TELL HIM TO DROP DEAD!”

Rippington says, “I'll tell him.”
