Casinos> Gambling Jokes
Gambling has always
seemed to follow certain patterns and stereotypes. Gambling ages
do vary around the world, but it is clear it is something for adults,
and casinos are mainly visited by men. Since that is the reality,
it isn’t so funny. Gambling jokes have been created, like gambling
itself, to be a reality away from reality. The more outrageous they
are, the funnier they are.
So it wasn’t surprising that the most outrageous types of
gambling would be put into jokes. Not
all are hilarious, but poke fun at the sport, and those who attempt it. The
stereotype in gambling jokes don’t necessarily involve casinos, whether online
casinos or off, but do hold dear to the idea. The idea being to play any game
for end result wins. It could be money, a dare, or ownership of something. In
jokes, sense goes right out the window, the idea seems to be surrounding less
of the gambling act itself, but scenery for what the gambler will do or say.
Main gambling joke stereotypes
surround the dumb blonde female, the ever faithful dog, the pride a joy smart
child, and the established married couple. Each either shows a ridiculously
dumb approach to gambling, or a smart approach. In the first two cases of the
blonde and the dog, both represent the dumb gamblers, and the child and couple
represent smart approaches to gambling. In jokes, gambling seems more the idea
of betting on something, than actual money wagering.
Since it was discussed of what these jokes symbolize, it is
important to first hand view what exactly is being discussed here. The jokes below symbolize each character in
gambling joke stereotypes discussed here, and what it says about these individuals.
That all, and why they are so simply cute or funny for a chuckle.
A blonde went to Atlantic City,
looking to play the slots. She loved slots, and had been waiting a long time
for a trip out to a casino to really play. She made it to all the casinos
looking for the best place to play. Finally she found a place, and picked a
machine she thought was lucky for wins. She was throwing dollars upon dollars
into the machine, and sure enough she was getting back coins. Finally the
manager of the casino came up to the woman, and asked her politely if she could
just leave the change machine alone.
A man walks into a casino, and at the entrance there was
a Labrador Retriever playing poker. Curious, he went to check out the play
action. Sure enough the dog was playing, and seemingly making good hands. After
three rounds, the man said, “I can’t believe that this dog can play, he must be
the smartest dog in the world!" The
owner replied, “ I’d like to take credit for this, but my dog, he isn't that
smart, he doesn’t know how to bluff, every time he gets a good hand, he just
sits there and howls."

Married Couple Gambler.
A man was quietly
drinking his morning coffee when his wife smacked him in the head with her
purse. "What was that for?" he says. "That was for the piece of
paper I found in your pants pocket with the name Penelope written on it",
she replies. He replies "Two weeks ago I went to the races, on my lunch
hour, and Penelope was the name of one of the horses I bet on." Figuring
it seemed like her husband to go to the races on time off from work; she apologizes,
and walks away. Three days later he's again sitting in his chair doing the same
morning routine, when she nails him again, this time repeatedly. "What the
hell was that for?” he yelled. “Your Philly stopped by," she yelled.
