One fine afternoon somewhere in Scotland an elderly gentleman tries to
get into the local betting office. Much to his surprise, the door is locked.
After a few more futile attempts at opening the door a man sticks his head
out of a window. It turns out to be the bookmaker himself :

- Sorry, but we're closed today !

The elderly gentleman promptly replies:

- But there's a sign on the door saying : Open : 9 - 4, and it's only
half past eleven !

to which the bookmaker says:

- But those are not the opening hours; they are the odds that we're
open today.
