Precious Metal

Although Paul and Richard were best friends, Paul was always in constant competition with Richard. In college, Paul spent his free time pining over the same girl, Kayla, buying her expensive gifts and begging her to go out with him.

While Richard spent his free time lazing about on his parents sailboat with the most popular cheerleader from college wrapped around his arm, ….Kayla.

When the two of them graduated, Paul’s parents gave him a 24 carat gold ring with an emerald inset.

Richard’s parents gave him a ring too, only his had a diamond inset and his was platinum. Paul was livid.

“I Guess platinum beats gold, huh!” Richard laughed playfully.

Many years passed, the two went their separate ways. The ten-year class reunion was fast approaching and Paul was getting nervous. He had just been through a nasty divorce and his business was failing, he couldn’t allow Richard to know this, especially if he was still doing well. He decided to meet with Richard for lunch before hand to see what he was up against.

At lunch Richard revealed that he had married Kayla, had two beautiful children and business was booming. Paul basically mirrored Richards life story and said He married a gorgeous woman and couldn’t wait for him to meet her. He threw down his gold MasterCard to pay for lunch, but Richard trumped it with his platinum Visa. “Ha, I guess platinum still beats gold”, Richard laughed.

Paul knew he’d have to get creative for the reunion, and set out to find the most beautiful platinum blonde to pose as his wife.

At the reunion Richard showed up arm in arm with Kayla, his perfect golden trophy wife. Paul showed up with a magnificently stunning platinum blonde.

Paul said, “I guess platinum still beats gold, huh buddy?”

“Yeah, she’s precious metal,” said Richard.

“I thought you might think so,” Paul said proudly.

No really, she’s Precious Metal, that’s her name. Greg over there told me she’s an exotic dancer down at the Topless Tuxedo. I hear she’s everyone’s favorite.
