Good Laughs

DRUM - - Contents -

At about 3.30am a woman wakes up to find she’s alone in bed and she can hear her hus­band cry­ing un­con­trol­lably.

She gets up to look for him. He’s not in the bath­room or the liv­ing room.

As she passes the kitchen she hears his faint snif­fles com­ing from the pantry.

She turns on the light, opens the pantry door and finds him in the cor­ner, rolled up into a ball and cry­ing hys­ter­i­cally. She rushes over to him and asks why he is cry­ing.

“Do you re­mem­ber when I got you preg­nant 20 years ago?” he says.

“Yes, of course,” she nods, a look of con­cern on her face.

“Well,” he says, “your dad said I could ei­ther marry you or go to jail.”

“I al­ready know that,” she says. “I don’t see what the prob­lem is.”

“Don’t you see?” he wails. “I would have got out to­day!”
