RECENT HALL OF FAME AWARD CEREMONY ENDS ON A SOUR NOTE......( Report by Pun )
A very well known ( but not well liked ) lady bridge player was invited to attend the latest HOF award ceremony and banquet. She was a self-confessed man-hater, but her stunning looks and superb brain attracted many male suitors from the upper echelons of the bridge world. However, she spurned all their bids and bold advances, preferring instead to partner her long time lesbian friend.
So when she was called out to collect her award, and with it admission into the hallowed fraternity of the game's most celebrated players, she was asked " what factors contributed to your success ? " . Before she could answer several suggestions boomed out from the audience......
- " Your impregnable defence ? "
- " Your inconceivable single-mindedness ? "
- " Your unbearable table presence ? "
Dismissing these suggestions with utter contempt, she glared at her tormentors for several seconds. Then, with a real cutting edge to her voice, she coldly replied : " No...No.....you men as usual have got it all wrong.....for as a bridge player....and a woman....my success in this male chauvinistic world is simply down to two things.....I am both insurmountable and inscrutable.
