An Important Lesson

Once you’ve lost a few hundred bucks at a three-card monte cardboard and newspaper table, you’ve learned an important lesson, one that should save you a lot of money and time. It’s the classic scam, and once you’re hip to it, you should never again be taken in. After a three-card monte loss, you should never again get burned. You should never go to a psychic, buy a magnetic bracelet or get a Ph.D. in American studies.

—Penn Gillette, the taller, louder half of the noir comedy magic team Penn & Teller.
