I padne mi na pamet da malo pro-google-am da vidim šta ima na tu temu po Net-u. I nađem apsolutno sjajnu priču koja se još pri tome i dešava kada je finansijska kriza u toku, što će reći, 100% aktuelno i primenljivo.
Naravno, prevela sam je koliko je moguće u duhu srpskog jezika i poslala.
Ovde ću da paste-ujem originalnu verziju.
During the Great Depression, there was a man who walked into a bar one day. He went up to the bartender and said, "Bartender, I'd like to buy the house a round of drinks."
The bartender said, "That's fine, but we're in the middle of the Depression, so I'll need to see some money first."
The guy pulled out a huge wad of bills and set them on the bar. The bartender couldn't believe what he was seeing. "Where did you get all that money?" asked the bartender.
"I'm a professional gambler," replied the man.
The bartender said, "There's no such thing! I mean, your odds are fifty-fifty at best, right?"
"Well, I only bet on sure things," said the guy.
"Like what?" asked the bartender.
"Well, for example, I'll bet you 500 USD that I can bite my right eye," he said.
The bartender thought about it. "Okay," he said.
So, the guy pulled out his false right eye and bit it. "Aw, you cheated on me," said the bartender, and paid the guy his 500 USD .
"I'll give you another chance. I'll bet you another 500 USD that I can bite my left eye," said the stranger.
The bartender thought again and said, "Well, I know you're not blind, I mean, I watched you walk in here. I'll take that bet." So, the guy pulled out his false teeth and bit his left eye.
"Aw, you cheated on me again!" protested the bartender.
"That's how I win so much money, bartender. I'll just take a bottle of your best scotch in lieu of the 500 USD," said the man.
Dakle, čapri je genijalna oduševila me je! Baš sam radoznala da li će biti nekakvih komentara, s obzirom da svi uglavnom šalju stupidarije, pa je u tom moru teže izdiferencirati ono što je kvalitet. A, i moji mail-ovi su, kao i ja, nezgodni, jer traže da se mozak prebaci sa stand-by režima (da ne kažem aranžmana) na full capacity! :-D
