AND CHENEY MAKE BET
Bush and Dick Cheney are watching the 6 o'clock
news on TV one evening. Cheney bets Bush $50 that
the man in the lead story, who is threatening
to jump from a 40 story building, will jump.
"I'll take that bet,"
Bush replied. A few minutes later, the newscaster
breaks in to report that the man had, indeed,
jumped from the building. Cheney, feeling sudden
guilt for having bet on such an incident, turns
to Bush and tells him that he does not need to
pay the $50.
"No, a bet's a bet,"
Bush replied, "I owe you $50 dollars."
Cheney, feeling even
more guilty, replied, "No, you don't understand,
I saw the 3:00 edition, so I knew how it was going
to turn out."
"That's okay," said Bush,
"I saw it earlier too, but I didn't think he'd
do it again."
