Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Friday, January 20


A driver, stopped by a police officer, is told that he had been going at least 75 in a 55 zone. He answers that he had only been going 65 -- but then his wife steps in: "Oh, Harry, you know you were going 80."

The officer adds that he is also going to give a ticket for the broken tail light. "Broken tail light?" protests the man. "I didn't know about any broken tail light!" -- but then his wife shakes her head and comments: "Oh, Harry, you have known about that tail light for weeks."

The officer swallows and tells the man that he is also going to write up a citation for not wearing a seatbelt; the man protests that he had just taken it off as the officer was walking up to the car -- and wouldn't you know it, the wife adds: "Oh, Harry, you never wear your seatbelt."

But that seems to have been the crucial straw, because the man turns to his wife and yells at her: "SHUT YOUR MOUTH!"

The officer quietly asks her, "Ma'am, does your husband talk to you this way all the time?"

"No," says the wife. "Only when he is drunk."
