Good--but funny--non-poker advice

I once spent a week or so working with an Explosive Ordinance Disposal team. As you might guess, their humor tended to be on the grim side.

The first day, the guy in charge, an old Gunnery Sergeant, told me “Son, the object of the game is to not be there when the bomb goes off. So, if you see me running, try to keep up.”

What good, but funny, advice have you gotten?


When my husband and I were newly engaged and discussing wedding dates, his mother said ‘You should get married on his birthday” As this is November I said I did not fancy that. She said “Think on, that way he will never have an excuse for forgetting your wedding anniversary “


LOL, your mother-in-law to be was a wise woman. In both senses of the word.
