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 humming and hawing, the bank staff finally ushered her into the 
president's office (the customer is always right!). The bank president 
then asked her how much she would like to deposit. She replied, 
"$165,000!" and dumped the cash out of her bag onto his desk. The 
president was of course curious as to how she came by all this cash, so he 
asked her, "Ma'am, I'm surprised you're carrying so much cash around. 
Where did you get this money?" The old lady replied, "I make bets." 

The president then asked, "Bets? What kind of bets?" The old woman said, 
"Well, for example, I'll bet you $25,000 that your balls are square." 
"Ha!" laughed the president, "That's a stupid bet. You can never win that 
kind of bet!" The old lady 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, "Okay, but since there is alot of 
money involved, may I bring my lawyer with me tomorrow at 10:00 AM as a 
witness?" "Sure!" replied the confident president. 

That night, the president got very nervous about the bet and spent a long 
time in front of a mirror checking his balls, turning from side to side, 
again and again. He thoroughly checked them out until he was sure that 
there was absolutely no way his balls were square and that he would win 
the bet. 

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 bet: "$25,000 says the president's balls are 
square!" The president agreed with the bet again and the old lady asked 
him to drop his pants so they could all see. The president complied. 

The little old lady peered closely at his balls and then asked if she 
could feel them. "Well, Okay," 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 against 
the wall. The president asked the old lady, "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
