My turn came after lunch, and I had to pick a card, too. Huh. Nine of diamonds. Instead of replacing it in the deck as instructed, I grabbed about six cards and fanned them. I asked the operator if our agency boss knew he was playing with a deck of 52 nines of diamonds. He unhooked me and told me I had passed.

BUSTED! I guess passing you was the price you charged for your silence.
