Separated by a common language
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:
I noticed a hand-painted gold and burgundy brandy snifter at my in-laws’ while we were celebrating their wedding anniversary. My father-in-law explained it had been a wedding gift from Ireland they had received 50 years earlier.
My brother-in-law picked it up and passed it around the dinner table. My heart was in my mouth as it went from one person to another because my clumsy relatives habitually drop things.
Finally it reached me and I put it back on the display case.
“How has this fragile keepsake lasted for so many years?” I wondered aloud.
“It’s the last of a set of eight,” my father-in-law replied.
