On Gambling

I was trying to quote something to friends the other day about cards and getting lemon in you ear. Turns out I was half remembering something from Guys And Dolls. Who knew? Anyway, the quote was:
One of these days in your travels, a guy is going to show you a brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is not yet broken. Then this guy is going to offer to bet you that he can make the jack of spades jump out of this brand-new deck of cards and squirt cider in your ear. But, son, do not accept this bet, because as sure as you stand there, you're going to wind up with an ear full of cider.
