Walk into the Club
A priest, a rabbi, three monkeys, an Englishman, a German, an Irishman, a zebra and a pencil walk into a bar. The bartender looks at the group and says, “What is this? Some kind of joke?”
Miss Manners, a bridge pro, a 499er and Charlie walk into the bridge club.
Miss Manners says, “People in this club should know more about the etiquette of duplicate bridge.”
Charlie says, “You’re in luck. Paul Friedman will be presenting a free seminar ‘Miss Manners at the bridge table’ on Wednesday May 23 at 11:00. This will be a fun and informative hour.”
The bridge pro says “I would like to play in a world class event.”
Charlie says “You’ll want to play in the World Wide Pairs, which will be held on Friday June 1 at 12:30 and Saturday June 2 at 10:30. Compare yourself with thousands around the world. Extra points, half of which are red!”
The 499er asks, “What about those of us with fewer than 500 points?”
Charlie says “The World Wide Pairs are for everyone. There’s also a 499er tournament coming up at the club on June 21, 23 and 24. Full details can be found here.”
Miss Manners, the bridge pro and the 499er all say “We wish we could play every day.”
Charlie says, “You can! Here is the list of games and lessons this week.”
