CartoonThe Big Catch

Doug was describing a 30 pound bass he’d
caught recently after fighting it for three hours.

Doug replied, “Well, a fish can lose
an awful lot of weight during three hours of fighting.”

What Gave You That Idea?

A wife and her husband attended a very
important business party thrown by her boss, where the husband may have had one
or two more than he should have.

On the way home from the party, the woman
said to her husband, “Have I ever told you how handsome and totally
irresistible to all women you are?”

“Why no,” said the husband,
deeply flattered.

“Then what gave you that idea at the
party?” she yelled.

Try Again

Arriving home from work at my usual hour of 5 p.m., I discovered that
it had not been one of my wife’s better days. Nothing I said or did seemed to
be right. By 7 p.m., things had not changed, so I suggested I go outside,
pretend I had just gotten home, and start all over again. My wife agreed.

I went outside, came back in and, with a big smile, announced,
“Honey, I’m home!”

“And just where have you been?” she replied sharply.
“It’s after seven o’clock!”
