An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman were up in court charged with playing
an illegal card game for money.
'I wasn't gambling in an illegal card game your honour,' said The Englishman to
The judge, 'I was just showing my friends a magic trick with The cards.'
'Case dismissed,' said The judge.
'I wasn't gambling at cards either your honour,' said The Scotsman, 'I was just
trying to calculate The odds of getting a full house.'
'Case dismissed also,' said The judge.
'Now,' he said to The Irishman, Were you playing an illegal card game?'
'Who with?' said The Irishman.
