Thorn and Bill, now in their eighties, first met in grade school.
Their relationship now is playing cards, playing jokes and making
bets. One day Thorn calls Bill and says: “I bet you that mine is
longer soft than yours is hard. A thousand dollars.”
Bill replies, “How can that be? If you know anything about biology
Thorn interrupts, “I called for a bet, not a lecture. Mine is longer
soft than yours is hard…a thousand dollars… YES OR NO?”
Bill says, “OK OK I’ll take that bet. How long is yours soft?”
Thorn answers, “Eleven years.”
GH: He sure knew how to bet!
