Hi, my name is Joseph Pigliatti. I am also known as Joey the Pig, Second Story Joey, Blackjack Joey and Joey Ice Cream Cone. If you don’t mind, I prefer Joey the Pig.
Anyhow, the good people at www.gambleonthis.com have asked me to write an article about the funniest gambling moment I can think of. There are so many but I will try.
The funniest one happened at a Friday night poker game. There was me, Patty the Irish Pint, Tony Two Times, and Johnny Good Bones. You see, we had got together for a night of 7 card stud.
Now the funny thing was that the Bosses had set up a hit on Patty the Irish Pint earlier in the day. Patty had been skimming off the top from the numbers racket and the Bosses wanted to set an example. Patty was to be whacked during our poker game. Tony Two Times had the contract on him.
Anyhow, here we all are at the poker game and me, Tony and Johnny can’t stop smiling. There is something very funny about being in a room with a guy that is suppose to get whacked and he don’t know it but all the other guys do. Every time I look at Tony Two Times I start to giggle and Tony can’t keep a straight face either and then Johnny Good Bones would look at us giggling and he would break up too. You had to be there.
Anyhow, Patty the Irish Pint has got no idea what is going on. He thinks we’re a bit goofy for carrying on like we are but he is winning big at the poker table so he don’t care. Which makes it seem even funnier to us because here is this guy that is going to get whacked momentarily and he is winning big.
So here is the climatic part of the story. There is a pot worth about 20 grand and the only two players left are Patty and Tony. Patty calls Tony and Tony lays down a full house. But get this, this is the real kicker, Patty lays down his cards and he has 4 aces!
At that point I fell on the floor laughing. I was laughing so hard I had to slap the floor and gasp for air. When Tony Two Times sees me laughing like this of course he falls to the floor laughing also. He is laughing so hard he is literally pissing himself. And Johnny Good Bones is also on the floor laughing so hard he can’t breath.
At this point Patty the Irish Pint is beginning to suspect something. Maybe it’s because he sees three fat wiseguys rolling around on the floor laughing like kids. Anyhow, Tony Two Times takes his gun out and points it at Patty. But just as he does this he looks me in the eye and we both start laughing again! Tony is laughing so hard he can’t even aim his gun.
Patty then takes his gun out and points it at Tony. But before he fires the gun he drops dead! We found out later he had a heart attack. All the excitement or something.
Anyhow, I hope the good people at www.gambleonthis.com enjoy my funny gambling story. It brings tears to my eyes every time I think of it.
