When the guys got together for poker on Friday night, one of the regulars was missing.
“Where’s Frank?” asked Charlie.
“Back in the hospital,” said Joe. “He had another heart attack.”
“Not again!” said Harry. “What happened?”
“Well, you know his doctor warned him to avoid strenuous activity,” said Joe. “So when we had all that snow yesterday, Frank didn’t know what to do. His wife can’t shovel ’cause she’s got a bad back, and Frank can’t shovel ’cause he’s got a bad heart. Then that lazy good-for-nothing teenage son of theirs pops up and says, ‘Don’t worry, Dad — from now on I’ll do all the shoveling.’ Frank had a heart attack on the spot.”
