This man was sitting quietly reading his paper one morning, peacefully
enjoying himself, when his wife sneaks up behind him and whacks him on
the back of his head with a huge frying pan.
He asks, ‘What was that for?’
She replies, ‘What was that piece of paper in your pants pocket with
the name Marylou written on it?’
He says, ‘Oh honey, remember two weeks ago when I went to the horse

She is appeased and goes off to work around the house. Three days later
he is once again sitting in his chair reading and she repeats the frying

She answered, ‘Your horse called!’
