Oh yeah! In my first post, I had not yet noticed there was a singleton in declarer's hand! Thought it was xx(x) towards KJ Got confused because then I realised it was about a singleton. Nevermind and thank you for putting me on track again :-)

Is the initial post not about leading towards KJ with a singleton in hand, Nick?
Saying nothing about leading a jack (supported or not) towards the king, was it?

Hanged, drawn and quartered
You top pros are pampered ;-)
At the club level, it's a daily occurrence. I ceased to count the kings I've lost this way a long time ago…
Another trendy joke is playing towards king-jack on the table and hesitating with the queen in closed hand.

Why should the Polish players have thought they were playing with cheaters?
Did the Israeli players say so about FS? The “Monegasques” about FN? Did we not witness heated debates because Ms. Auken and Mr. Welland supported PS before A. Smirnov confessed?

For a while they used to play 5 in the Masters finals though. I guess it was a test.

Good chance that women will complain about being treated like old men and vice versa :-D

(…) We shall fight on the beaches… We shall never surrender!" (…)
If that's not the most powerful speech ever, what is? ;-)

There is a fair amount of space for light-hearted puns here…

I like to say : “When I was young, I used to be a feminist, then I took up bridge”
If I see a woman frowning upon this, I add “Oh don't misunderstand me, now. There are women playing way better than I do…five or six at least”

The problem's not Zsusza (you won't see me call her Susan, I actually feel ashamed for her), but dear old Paul…

Cruelty in jokes is a very powerful exorcism.

Yes, Ms. Teshome, we are a nation of archetypal male chauvinist pigs, we enslave our women (you didn't actually think we pay them, did you?) and we are rude (that may be true) and smelly.
On the other hand, taking a lift alone with a woman is hardly an issue here. You normally don't get involved in a lawsuit for sexual harassment because you addressed her or smiled to her. I once translated an internal anti SH policy for a US company. Having a picture of one's girlfriend in swimsuit on one's desk was deemed offensive, reading (as a woman and potential customer) a lingerie catalog in the staff room was deemed inappropriate…
I remember thinking to myself “Why do I have to translate this? Which French-speaking country would go for such b……t?”.
Back to the topic, this is a JOKE, for goodness sake!
I guess I shouldn't tell you what my all-time favorite joke is, lest you'd faint.

Cruelty is often the very spice of a good joke.

An average 8-year old French kid would rate this thread as “really surreal”
We have many faults, but delirious political correctness is not (God be praised) one of them.
