Joke 66

29 May

I seem to be reserving Sundays for the groaniest jokes.  I think I’m hoping people will sleep in and miss them.      


Some men were discussing coincidences.

The first man said, “My wife was reading a A Tale Of Two Cities and she gave birth to twins.”

“That’s funny,” the second man remarked, “my wife was reading The Three Musketeers and she gave birth to triplets.”

A third man said, “My wife gave birth to quintuplets after reading Five Children And It.” 

Suddenly, another man jumped up, shouting, “I have to get home now!”

When asked what the problem was, he exclaimed, “When I left the house, my wife was reading Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves!”

    I thought the punchline would be Cheaper by the Dozen.

      That would have been so much better 🙂 The original is a great film.

        I agree about the original being great. The idea of purposely having that many children in this day and age sort of turns my stomach. Also the multiples by in vitro… I’m not against fertilization per se, but when you do a procedure that is basically meddling with “church” practices and then get all weepy over the eggs from the Petrie dish… I mean, CHOOSE ALREADY! 🙂

        Sorry, parents of quads, I’m just sayin’… Amy

          It doesn’t seem right to have big families any more, does it?

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
