An elderly lady walked into a branch of the Chase Manhattan Bank
building holding a large paper bag in her hand. She told the young
man at the window that she wished to take the $3 million she had in
the bag and open an account with the bank. She said that first,
thought, she would like to meet the President of Chase Manhattan
bank. Due to the amount of money involved, the teller seemed to
think that was a reasonable request and after opening the paper
bag and seeing bundles of $1,000 bills which amounted to right around
$3 million, telephoned the President's secretary to obtain an
appointment for the woman.
The woman was escorted upstairs and ushered into the president's
office. Introductions were made and she stated that she liked to get
to know the people she did business with on a more personal level.
The bank president then asked her how she came into such a large sum
"Was it an inheritance?" he asked.
"No," she answered.
"Was it from playing the stock market?" he inquired.
"No," she replied.
He was quiet for a second, trying to think of where this elderly
woman could possibly have come up with $3 million dollars.
"I bet," she stated.
"As in horses?" he asked.
"No," she replied. "I bet people." Seeing his confusion, she
explained that she just bet on different things with people. All of
a sudden she said, "I'll bet you $25,000 that by 10:00 o'clock tomorrow
morning your balls will be square."
The bank president figured she must be off her rocker and decided to
take her on her bet. He didn't know how he could lose. For the rest
of the day he was very careful. He decided to stay home that evening
and take no chances as there was $25,000 at stake.
When he got up in the morning and took his shower, he checked to make
sure everything was okay. There was no difference in his scrotal
appearance. He looked the same as he always had. He went to work
and waited for the woman to come in at 10:00 o'clock, humming as he
went. He knew this would be his lucky day -- how often did he get
handed $25,000 for doing nothing?
At 10:00 o'clock sharp the woman was shown into his office. With her
was a man. When the bank president asked what the other man was
doing in the office, she informed the president that he was her
lawyer and she always took him along when there was that much money
involved. "Well," she asked, "what about our bet?"
"I don't know how to tell you this," he replied, "but I'm the same
as I've always been, only $25,000 richer!"
The lady seemed to accept this, but requested that she be able to see
herself. The bank president thought this was a reasonable request
considering the amount of money involved and dropped his trousers.
She instructed him to bend over and then she grabbed hold of him.
Sure enough, everything was fine. His balls were not square.
The bank president then looked up and saw her lawyer, standing across
the room banging his head against the wall. "What's wrong with him?"
"Oh, him," she answered. "I bet him $100,000 that by 10:00 o'clock
this morning I'd have the president of Chase Manhattan Bank by the
