A little old lady went into the Bank of Canada one day, carrying a bag of money. She insisted that she must speak with the President of the Bank to open a savings account because, "It's a lot of money."
After much himing and hawing, the bank staff finally ushered her into the President's office. The Bank President then asked her how much she would like to deposit. She replied "$165,000!" and dumped the cash onto his desk. The President was of course curious as to how she came by all this cash, so he asked her "Where did you get all this cash?"
She replied "I make bets."
Then he asked "Bets? What kind of bets?"
She said, "Well, for example, I'll bet you $25,000 that your balls are square."
"Ha!" he laughed. "That's a stupid bet. You can never win a bet like that!"
She challenged "So, would you like to take my bet?"
"Sure," said the President, "I'll bet $25,000 that my balls are not square!"
The little old lady then said "OK, but since there is a lot of money involved, may I bring my lawyer with me tomorrow, say at 10.00 am, as a witness?"
"No problem," said the President.
The next morning, at precisely 10.00 am, the little old lady appeared with her lawyer at the President's office. She introduced the lawyer to the President, and repeated the terms of the bet. The President agreed with the bet again, and dropped his pants so they could all see. The little old lady peered closely at his balls and then asked if she could feel them.
"Well, OK," said the President. "$25,000 is a lot of money, so I guess you should be absolutely sure." Just then, he noticed that the lawyer was quietly banging his head off the wall.
He asked "What the hell's the matter with your lawyer?"
She replied "Nothing. Except I bet him $100,000 that at 10.00 am today, I'd have the Bank of Canada's president's balls in my hand."
