Lucky Number Three

A man woke up to notice that his alarm clock had stopped at 3:33 AM, as did the clock in his living room.
Next, when he decided to make some toast for breakfast, he noticed that he had just three slices of bread left.
Next, he realized that the paper boy had mistakenly dropped three newspapers on his porch.
Checking the date, the man saw that it was the third of the month. He went to the Sports section of his newspaper and checked the horses that would be racing down at the track. Sure enough, the third race had a horse called 'Triple Threat'.
Thinking that 3 was his lucky number today, he called his bookie, and put $3333 on Triple Threat to win.
That afternoon, the horse won the race and the man was so overjoyed that he had won so much money, that he immediately ran out of the house to collect his money.
Unfortunately, three minutes later he was trampled to death by three escaped elephants from the zoo.
