I'm reminded of the TV gag where the loser of a "best two out of three" coin-toss makes a demand to change the rules to "okay, how about: best three out of five".

The reason it's funny on the TV show is because it shows that the loser who wants to change the rules AFTER THE FACT is someone who lacks integrity but believes that nobody notices and it's a character who somehow believes that he (or she) is "deserving" or more opportunities beyond that upon which was originally agreed. It also plays to comedic effect because the loser shows the audience an irrational belief that somehow he (or she) will manage to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat if he (or she) can somehow manage to defy the odds and get three consecutive wins that will miraculously satisfy the new conditions of the challenge.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
