Bob walked into a sports bar around 9:58 p.m.
He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV just as the 10:00 p.m. news was coming on.
The news crew was covering a story about a man preparing to jump off the ledge of a building downtown.
The blonde looked at Bob and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”
Bob said, “You know, I bet he’ll jump.”
The blonde replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.”
Bob placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, “You’re on!”
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death.
The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her $20 to Bob saying, “Fair’s fair. Here’s your money.”
Bob replied, “I can’t take your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 p.m. news so I already knew he would jump.”
The blonde replied, “I saw it too, but I never thought he’d do it again.”
Bob took the money.
