A man goes to the doctor, who checks him over and says, “I’m sorry, it’s bad news. You’ve got Yellow 24, a really nasty virus. It’s called Yellow 24 because it turns your blood yellow and you usually only have 24 hours to live. There’s no known cure. All you can do is go home and enjoy your last moments.”
The man goes home and sadly breaks the news to his wife. She is distraught, but asks that he go with her to bingo, as he’s never gone with her before.
At bingo, with his first card he gets four corners and wins $35. Then with the same card he gets a line and wins $320. Then he gets a full house and wins $1000. The national grid comes up and he wins that too, winning $380,000.
The bingo caller calls him up on stage. “Son, in 20 years I’ve never seen anyone win all that on one ticket. You must be the luckiest man alive.”
“Lucky?” he screams. “I’ll have you know I’ve got Yellow 24.”
“Bugger me,” says the bingo caller. “You’ve won the raffle as well!”
