Stop! Yer mixing metaphors. Making yer self sick. - Hostess

[From up river, riverboat paddles toward New Orleans. Din of cigar smoke is thick. Yer down poker chips. Hostess sashays to your gambling table w/ cocktail. Note written on napkin.]

Hostess: Howdy. A young feller like yer self might be needing refreshing. [Curtsy] On the house.

Napkin Note: "Wretch not. Royal Flush takes trick!"
