Six retired Scotsmen were playing poker in McTavish's apartment when Angus loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest, and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen brother, the other five continue playing standing up. Finally one looks around and asks, "Oh, lads, someone got's tell Angus's wife. Who will it be?" They draw straws. Mac picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don't make a bad situation any worse. "Discreet??? I'm the most discreet Scotsman you'll ever meet. Discretion is my middle name. Leave it to me." Mac goes over to Angus's house and knocks on the door. Angus’s wife answers, and asks what he wants. Mac declares, "Your husband just lost $500, and is afraid to come home." "Tell him to drop dead!", says Angus's wife. "I'll go tell him." says Mac.
