Bill and Bush are sitting in front of the television watching the six
o'clock news. The main story is a man threatening to jump off the Clifton Suspension Bridge on to the busy road below.
Bill turns to Bush and says: "I bet you 5,000 that he jumps!" to which Bush replies "5,000? Done! I bet that he doesn't." So they shake hands on the bet and continue watching.
Sure enough, the man jumps and hits the road below with a loud thud. Bush takes 5,000 out of his back pocket and hands it to . But she refuses.
"I can't take your money, Bill," he says. "The truth is, I was cheating.
I saw the five o'clock news, so I knew he was going to jump." "No, babe, fair's fair" says Bill. "That money is yours fair and square. I was cheating just as you were. I saw the five o'clock news, too. I just didn't think he would do it again."
