Today I saw a group of three people riding bicycles together - one of them had no front wheel on their bike, and one of the others was carrying a bike wheel on their back.

Well, I guess I would have lost money, unless I bluffed successfully.

Not that a pair is actually a winning hand, as far as I know, in any games of poker, although I do have one in this post, so I feel like a winner.

Book(b)ends, and ape hair.

Well, I'm not much of a poker player either, except for video poker, and I always have to refer to the list of winning hands. And apparently I was wrong, one pair can be a winning hand. I should have known that--the video game I usually play is Jack or Better, and one pair definitely counts if it's, as you might guess jacks or better.

"Poker hands" sounds like a repetitive stress injury you can get from playing poker too much, like tennis elbow.

This sounds like an unfinished haiku. Let's see...

On the other hand,
what could happen if you did?
Come on, try it out!


Edit: Whoops, someone made a numerical typo that got carried over throughout a couple of posts. No harm done, though.

Indeed, I caught it just in time before there would have been actual consequences, such as missing that pair.

Edit:

To avoid consequences,
Like missing that pair.
