One night a man who used to play cards was going home from gambling. On his way home a little man dressed in black and white stepped out from under a bush. This man had a little table under his arm and he asked the man to play a game of cards. The two of them played there till morning. This man would never play cards since. He always says "that cards and dice are the devil's advice"
