As it lays
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:
Mary was married to a something of a chauvinist. They both worked full time, but he never did anything around the house and certainly not any housework. That, he declared, was “woman’s work.”
One evening Mary arrived home from work to find the children bathed, a load of wash in the washing machine and another in the dryer, dinner on the stove and a beautifully set table, complete with flowers. She was astonished, and she immediately wanted to know what was going on.
It turned out that her husband Charley had read a magazine article that suggested working wives would be more romantically inclined if they weren’t so tired from having to do all the housework in addition to holding down a full- time job.
The next day, she couldn’t wait to tell her friends in the office. “How did it work out?” they asked.
“Well, it was a great dinner,” Mary said. “Charley even cleaned up, helped the kids with their homework, folded the laundry and put everything away.”
“But what about afterward?” her friends wanted to know.
“Oh, that part didn’t work out,” Mary said. “He fell asleep in the laundry room.”
