The House Fly

During a roulette session a fly landed on 34 red. Taking this as a good luck omen, a player put all he had on this number. The wheel spun, and the ball landed on 17 red.

"Too bad," a fellow player said. "It must have been a house fly."

A Sure Bet

A very popular figure in the Las Vegas gambling scene died. And a large number of his gambling friends turned out for the funeral. As the preacher went on about how the deceased was a good family man, friend, and member of the community, he asked those present not to think of the deceased as dead, but just sleeping. A gambler friend in the back was overheard to say, "I have a hundred that says he's dead."
