Kids these days

Another example of how poker may have "jumped the shark." Check out this lead in a recent news article on poker:

Poker isn’t allowed in school, so eighth-grade would-be card sharks ditch telltale chips, gather at lunch and use push-ups as currency: ‘‘I see your five push-ups and raise you 15.’’ Faced with the same dilemma, high schoolers bet bags of potato chips and cookies from their lunches, or toothpicks that they can quickly stuff into their pockets if the principal happens along.
