My Favorite Joke

Saul is working in his store when he hears a booming voice from above: "SAUL, SELL YOUR BUSINESS FOR $3 MILLION."

He ignores it.

It goes on for days. SAUL, SELL YOUR BUSINESS FOR $3 MILLION."

After weeks of this, he relents and sells his store.

The voice says ‘SAUL, GO TO LAS VEGAS."

He asks why.

"SAUL, TAKE THE $3 MILLION TO LAS VEGAS."

He obeys, goes to a casino. The Voice says,

"SAUL, GO TO THE BLACKJACK TABLE AND PUT IT ALL DOWN ON ONE HAND."

He hesitates but knows he must. He’s dealt an 18. The dealer has a six showing.

"SAUL, TAKE A CARD." says the Voice

"What? The dealer has --"

"TAKE A CARD!" booms the Voice.

He tells the dealer to hit him. Saul gets an ace. Nineteen. He breathes easy.

"SAUL, TAKE ANOTHER CARD."

"What?!"

"TAKE ANOTHER CARD!"

He asks for another card. It’s another ace. He has twenty.

"SAUL, TAKE ANOTHER CARD," the voice commands.

"But I have twenty!" Saul shouts.

"TAKE ANOTHER CARD!!" booms the voice.

Saul turns to the dealer. "Hit me," he says. He gets another ace. Twenty one.

And the booming voice says:

"UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE!!!"

I think I love this joke because aside from an f-bomb, it's funny yet inoffensive to everyone. Not that I really care about it being offensive. It's just - this is a rare class of joke.

Also, I believe this is one of the few - perhaps the only - joke that is based on The Book of Job.
