Following the fire at the Jockey, our next meeting on Tuesday 19th November will be held in a private house in Stanford. Please get in touch if you would like to come along and would like directions. As usual, we will be playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.
And talking of bluffing…
Jeff was pulled over by a police officer pulls for speeding. The conversation went like this:
Officer: May I see your driver’s license please, sir?
Jeff: I don’t have one – I was caught for drunk driving and had it taken away.
Officer: Do you have the vehicle registration certificate, sir?
Jeff: It’s not my car; I stole it.
Officer: The car is stolen?
Jeff: That’s right, but come to think of it, I think I saw the log book in the glove box when I was putting my gun in there.
Officer: There’s a gun in the glove box?
Jeff: Of course – that’s where I put it after I shot and killed the woman who owns this car and stuffed her in the boot.
Officer: There’s a BODY in the BOOT?!?!?
Jeff: Well, yes.
Hearing this, the officer immediately called his sergeant and the the car was quickly surrounded by police. The sergeant approached the driver to handle the tense situation:
Sergeant: Can I see your license please, sir?
Jeff: Sure. Here it is.
– It was valid.
Sergeant: Who’s car is this please, sir?
Jeff: It’s mine – Here’s the vehicle registration documentation.
– Jeff owned the car.
Sergeant: Could you please slowly open your glove box so I can see if there’s a gun in it?
Jeff: Yes, sir, but there’s no gun in it…
– There was nothing in the glove box.
Sergeant: Would you mind opening your boot please, sir? I was told you there’s a body in it.
Jeff: Of course…
– He opened the boot; no body.
Sergeant: I don’t understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told him you didn’t have a license, stole the car, had a gun in the glovebox, and that there was a dead body in the boot.
Jeff: Yeah, and I’ll bet the liar told you I was speeding, too…
