Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:

Ralph feared his wife Peg wasn’t hearing as well as she used to, and he thought she might need a hearing aid.

Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.

The doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

“Here’s what you do,” said the doctor, “Stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet and so on until you get a response.”

That evening, the wife was in the kitchen cooking dinner, and Ralph was in the den. He thought to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.”

Then in a normal tone, he asked, “Honey, what’s for dinner?”

No response.

So he moved closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife, and repeated, “Peg, what’s for dinner?”

Still no response.

Next, he moved into the dining room, where he was about 20 feet from his wife, and asked, “Honey, what’s for dinner?”

Again, he got no response.

So, he walked up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. “Honey, what’s for dinner?”

Again, there was no response.

So he walked right up behind her. “Peg, what’s for dinner?”

“For heaven’s sake, Ralph, for the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!”
