woman walked into the Bank of Canada one morning with a purse full of
money. She wanted to open a savings account and insisted on talking

After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is
always right) an employee took the elderly woman to the president's
The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to
deposit. She placed her purse on his desk and replied, '$165,000'.
The president was curious and asked her how she had been able to save
so much money. The elderly woman replied that she made bets.
The president was surprised and asked, 'What kind of bets?'
The elderly woman replied, 'Well, I bet you $25,000 that
your testicles are square.'
The pr esident started to laugh and told the woman that it
was impossible to win a bet like that.
The woman never batted an eye. She just looked at the
president and said, 'Would you like to take my bet?'
'Certainly', replied the president. 'I bet you $25,000 that

The elderly woman came closer so she could see better and
asked the president if she could touch them. 'Of course', said the
president. 'Given the amount of money involved, you should be 100%
The elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the
president noticed that the lawyer was banging his head a gainst the
wall. He asked the elderly woman why he was doing that and she
replied, 'Oh, it's probably because I bet him $100,000 that around
