My favorite memory from college is sitting around my rickety old kitchen table with two of my mates, downing Cokes and enjoying round after round of poker at 3 am. Somehow, we managed to get up the next day, passed all our exams and eventually went on to become reasonably professional in our respective careers. I’ve had a lot of sweet memories since then but those early memories still stick with me today, and whenever we get the chance, my college pals and I get together to play poker as we did back then. The only difference is that we’ve swapped the Cokes for beer….
Over the years, I’ve collected some great poker jokes to share with my buddies every time we meet. Here are a couple of my favorites:
“A rabbi, a minister, and a priest were playing poker when the police came through the door, to raid the game.
Approaching the priest, the chief officer asks: “Father O’Sullivan, were you gambling?” Looking up to heaven, the father whispers, “Lord, absolve me for what I am about to do.” Turning to the police officer, the father said, “No, officer, I wasn’t gambling.”
The officer then turns and asks the minister: “Pastor Jackson, were you by any chance gambling?” Again, after pleading to the heavens, the minister had replied, “No, officer, I had not been gambling.”
Turning his attention to the rabbi, the police officer asks one more time: “Rabbi Levkovitch, were you by any chance gambling?” Shrugging his shoulders, the rabbi replied: “With whom?”
A couple of dog owners were arguing about how intelligent their pets were.
“The smartest dog I ever had,” said one of them, “was a German shepherd called Jack. He could play poker better than most people, but I eventually had him put to sleep.”
“You put him to sleep, a smart dog like that?” asked the other men, astounded. “A dog such as that must be worth millions of dollars.”
“I had to,” he replied, “We caught him using marked cards!”
