( Another short story by Bridgemeister Gibson )
Two gay bridge players decided to go away for a camping weekend. One was an all-seeing expert at the game : the other was a blinkered academic who thought he could play. During the night, the expert turned to his partner and said : " I'm a little perturbed.........I want you to look up into the sky, and tell me what strikes you as obvious ? "
His narrow sighted partner thought long and hard, such was his desperation to impress his friend with his all round knowledge and intellect.
" Astronomically, there has to be millions of galaxies, and potentially billions of planets. "
" Theologically, there has to be a God who is great, and that we as human beings are small and insignificant. "
" And meteorologically, there are clear signs that we will have a cold night..... but a bright sunny day tomorrow. "
The expert was truly amazed at what he had just heard.
" Well ", he said " ....Yet again you have demonstrated what a complete tosser you are. Just as you always do at the card table........... you fail to see the obvious. "
" What other conclusions could I have possibly drawn ? " came the puzzled and whimpering reply.
" The one perhaps that some bloody arsehole has stolen our tent ! "
