Heart attack

Some of the boys got together to play poker one Friday. After about four hours of playing, Jack had severe chest pains and suddenly he slumped over. One of the gamblers, who happened to be a doctor, examined him. To everyone's surprise and shock, poor Jack had died of a heart attack.

None of his friends knew just how to break the sad news to Jack's wife. Finally Jim said, "I think that I can be diplomatic about it, and break the news to her gently."

Floyd rang the bell at Jack's house. When Jack's wife answered the door, Jim said to her, "Jack gambled with us and lost $1,000."

When Jack's wife heard this she said, "Just tell Jack to just drop dead!" Jim replied, "That's exactly what he did."
