"I've finally beaten the bookies..."

Wow. Sounds like this win might almost put him back in the black.

More likely, though, he's spent 90,000quid and wins 84,000 back.

God, you farking British are weird.

i doubt a *ahem* 'lorry driver' has ever had 90K to spend (and i mean over time not at once... course if i knew what the hell a lorry was this could be a more accurate statement.

/trying to hide that he has nothing.

Countdown til 3 mafia lackeys kick his door in:

OK, we need a Brit-American dictionary for the word "punter".
2003-03-26 02:05:12 PM  
84,198.50 pounds?  Pounds of what?

If a virtual horse stalls on a track, do they remove it by shooting it?
2003-03-26 02:07:11 PM  
Virtual horse racing? This is as bad as keno... I what? Pick a bunch of numbers and then you tell me if I win? Oh, I lost? Bummer.

Machine malfunction voids all pays or plays.

Please play again

Did the shiat contain prime numbers?

Undertoad -

Bettor (US) - Someone who places or has a bet. A 'Punter' in the UK.

But the US has some unusual betting slang too. Take "Buy the Rack" or "Flash" for example.

Heh..Bettors gone wild.

How much is that in real money?
2003-03-26 02:19:26 PM

"Rigged? That's about as crazy as a screen door on a battleship. Now make like a tre and get out of here!"
2003-03-26 02:57:35 PM  
Lorry = truck.
Punter = gambler, usu. horses/dogs (IIRC).

MilkBone: Does the horse shiat out guns?

Wow, dude, that just became a new catchphrase for me.

Does a bear shiat in the woods?

Ed was the only smart man in the world. He worked his way through college with "The World's First Paperless Lottery."

"Here's a dollar," his customers would say. "Did I win?"

"No," Ed would reply.

"Oh. Here's another dollar. Did I win?"

"Yes. You won another chance to win."

"Oh. Did I win with that one?"

2003-03-26 05:15:23 PM  
Wait till he finds out the money is virtual
2003-03-26 05:31:14 PM  
"How much is that in real money?"

In case you people hadn't noticed your economy is in the shiatter, so £84,000 is alot more than $84,000 in "real money". This "joke" seems to appear in every thread where a story involes non US money.

People: Its not funny!
