At a posh Las Vegas casino, a blackjack dealer and a player with a 13 count in his hand are arguing about whether or not it is appropriate to tip the dealer. The player says, "When I get bad cards, its not the dealers fault. Accordingly, when I get good cards, the dealer obviously has nothing to do with that either, so why should I tip him?"

The dealer replies, "When you eat at a restaurant do you tip the waiter?"

"Yes," the gambler concedes.

"Well then, he serves you food; whether its good or bad isnt up to him. By the same token, Im serving you cards, so you should tip me."

"OK," says the gambler, "but the waiter gives me what I ask for.Ill take an 8."
