An elderly 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
to the president of the Bank because, she said, she had a lot of money.
After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right) an
employee took the elderly woman to the president's office.
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
The president 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 my testicles are
"Done," the elderly woman answered. "But given the amount of money involved,
if you don't mind I would like to come back at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning
with my lawyer as a witness."
"No problem," said the president of the Bank confidently.
That night, the president became very nervous about the bet and spent a long
time in front of the mirror examining his testicles, turning them this way
and that, checking them over again and again until he was positive that no
one could consider his testicles as square and reassuring himself that there
was no way he could lose the bet.
The next morning at exactly 10 o'clock the elderly woman arrived at the
president's office with her lawyer and acknowledged the $25,000 bet made the
day before that the president's testicles were square.
The president confirmed that the bet was the same as the one made the day
before. Then the elderly woman asked him to drop his pants etc. so that she
and her lawyer could see clearly.
The president was happy to oblige.
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% sure."
The elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the president noticed
that the lawyer was banging his head against 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 10 o'clock in the morning I would be holding the balls of the President of the Bank of Canada!"
