This man was sitting quietly reading his paper one morning,
peacefully enjoying himself, when his wife sneaks up behind
him and whacks him on the back of his head with a huge frying
MAN: "What was that for?"
WIFE: "What was that piece of paper in your pants pocket with
the name Marylou written on it?"
MAN: "Oh honey, remember two weeks ago when I went to the horse
races? Marylou was the name of one of the horses I bet on."
The wife looked all satisfied, apologizes, and goes off to do
her duty around the house.
Three days later he is once again sitting in his chair reading
MAN: "What the hell was that for this time?"
WIFE: "Your horse phoned."
