I think the funniest line you could come away with would be if you were at a table with Hellmuth. Good old Uncle Buck :

"Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face!"

After some hand this guy tabled Q3 offsuit. Another guy remarked "San Francisco Waiter, Queen with a tray"

Re: Funniest joke/line you've heard at a poker table?

Neil Channing has quite the way with words

I heard a great line from another table. My good friend Alan Betson had qualified for this tournament online, and although I havn't seem him around much lately I was pleased to see his sense of humour hasn't changed. After another attempted steal raise from him, the American in the blinds, with just a slight lack of subtlety, grabbed a random amount of chips, totalling around half his stack and threw them forward haphazardly as a reraise. Alan raised a quizzical eyebrow and asked:

"Just the one fistful then?"

I loved the US sports reporter who was talking to Usain Bolt recently after his Olympics 100m gold/record and he asked who his favourite athlete was, Bolt replied Matthew Hayden the cricketer ... The US sports reporter goes on to ask "Oh, is the the thrower or the hitter?"

Re: Funniest joke/line you've heard at a poker table?

Playing live 50/100nl, I was drinking thus playing everything, called a 3 bet pot with 7/3 off.
Villian is one of those nitty idiots that does nothing but complain about being in front ppre flop and losing on the river etc...

board 3/3/10/6/J

Anyway it all goes in on the flop, I think I had roughly £70 behind, and villian had me slightly covered.
Villian shows A/A then this comedy gold came up...

Villian : 'What are you calling for pre flop?!?!'
Me : 'Had a pair draw'
Villian : 'This is a ****ing joke'

Edit, this line has since cost me a lot of money as I like to call no pair no draw bets on flops, just to try and catch something on the turn or river, that is when the line works best.

Re: Funniest joke/line you've heard at a poker table?

I was 21-22 at the Grand in Gulfport MS. I was playing 1-4-8-8 HE and poured a few bad beats on an old man. I'm sure I was being a drunk ass and after one of the beats another old man tells the old man I keep bad beating:

"How can you let a little boy like that beat you over and over? You probably have stains on your sheets older than him."

Std 2/5 game, guy raises to $25 in EP and gets like 5 callers then someone reraises to $160ish. Folds back to a guy who just called the raise and has like like $150 to start the hand so the call would be an all in for him. He has been tank/folding for the whole session the whole table already knew we were going to be waiting like 45-60 seconds before he folds. The raiser starts needling him after like 10 seconds "Come on we know you're gonna fold just fold your hand" and then after 30 seconds he spite calls. HU.

Board comes out: A78K9
3-bettor Tables his AK and says "Two pair"
Caller shows TJo for a straight.

3-bettor gets furious and goes off on him "How can you call, that's so bad" etc. etc. This goes on for about a minute, and over the next 5 minutes is still making comments and the table is telling him to calm down already and it's enough.

Finally after 10 minutes of hearing this guy complain, another guy at the table says to him "You almost beat him too, you had two pair !"

(I know it prolly wasn't that funny reading it, but the whole table burst into laughter !)
I thought it was hilarious, good share.

Re: Funniest joke/line you've heard at a poker table?

Two players get it all in for a big pot, P1 has AA, P2 has AJ. P2 hits gutshot on the river. As he's raking the pot he says, "I just had a feeling on that one."

P1 says without hesitation, "That's just an impending bowel movement."

Re: Funniest joke/line you've heard at a poker table?

I was dealing at a home game. One of the players was a friendly guy in a wheel chair. The guy sitting next to him stood up and nearly tripped on the leg of his chair. The crippled guy just looked at him with a straight face and said "That whole walking thing is harder than it looks." I nearly cried I was laughing so hard.

Re: Funniest joke/line you've heard at a poker table?

A similar joke was already posted, but w/e.

P1 raises and P2 to his left re-raises all in (covers P1). P1 tanks and asks, "do you have a big one?" P2: "You wanna see?" P1: "Show both." P2 stands up from his seat and motions towards his zipper and P2 insta-mucks in disgust and laughter.

Re: Funniest joke/line you've heard at a poker table?

Was dealing years ago and heard this one from an old regular. A young guy had been spewing chips and flashed his cards to the regular on the river after his straight draw missed on a flushed paired board and started whining about his bad luck. The regular without missing a beat said "Son, you're like a dog chasing a car." The kid looked at him kinda funny and said "huh?" To which the regular replied, "Even if you catch it, you still don't know how to drive." It took everything I had to not laugh while sitting in the box.
