When the bookie asked the veteran horse player the secret of his consistent success, the gambler provided a simple explanation. "I'm just lucky, I guess. I turn to the racing page, close my eyes and stick a pin in it," he said.
"Lucky!" the bookie exclaimed in disbelief. "But how did you pick this four-horse combination?"
"Well," the gambler admitted, "I didn't have a pin, so I used a fork."
