A favorite joke

Marvin is working in his store when he hears a booming voice from above: “Marvin, sell your business.” He ignores it. It goes on for days. “Marvin, sell your business for $3 million.” After weeks of this, Marvin relents, sells his store. The voice says ‘Marvin, go to Las Vegas.”

He asks why.

“Marvin, take the $3 million to Las Vegas.”

He obeys, goes to a casino.

The voice says, “Marvin , go to the blackjack table and put it down all on one hand.”

He hesitates but knows that he must.

He’s dealt an 18. The dealer has a six showing.

“Marvin, take a card.”

What? The dealer has — ”

Take a card!”

Marvin tells the dealer to hit him. He gets an ace. Nineteen. He breathes easy.

“Marvin, take another card.”

What?

“TAKE ANOTHER CARD!”

Marvin asks for another card. It’s another ace. He has twenty.

“Marvin, take another card,” the voice commands.

I have twenty! Marvin shouts.

“TAKE ANOTHER CARD!!” booms the voice.

Hit me, Marvin says. He gets another ace. Twenty one.

The booming voice goes: “Un-fucking-believable!”
