[edit] The Inverse Property of Luck-Have

I was playing some Poker Night at the Inventory today, when I won a hand by a lot. Strong Bad then said, "Yeah, you're lucky now, but you know you're gonna get run over by a truck when you leave here. It's the Inverse Property of Luck-Have." Is it worth including, especially since there's no even vaguely mathematical principle to it? --The New Uzi Bazooka 20:34, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

I think it should go in. It's definitely of the same theme as the others on the page, despite not being represented with equation symbols. The question becomes what is the best way to document it. -132.183.138.134 21:31, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
