Scenes From An Idiot's Marriage

The phone rang Sunday morning as we were getting ready for church.

I answered it. Turns out one of the ladies from church wanted to talk to my wife.

"Honey," I called up the stairs. "It's Nelsonia Depew* on the phone."

"Oh, from church?" she asked.

"No, it's adult film superstar Nelsonia Depew," I replied.

As my buddy, Bernie says, "How does she stand it?"

*Note: This is not the woman's name, but it is almost as distinctive.

I knew a couple (Grace and Ray) who had four kids. Their son Tom would occasionally be a wise-guy, and his mother would say, "Ray, speak to that boy!" And of course Ray would say, "Hi Tom."

The son would then say, "Did you call me, Dad?" and father would reply, "No, I called you Tom."

It's when you get to the stage of finishing each other's sentences that you could get into real trouble...

Hey, that's great! Thanks for the tip Fluffy!

Man, my wife would smack me with the phone.

No she wouldn't. She'd just sigh and pick up the phone. But it sounds better if I say that she'd smack me. My wife isn't a smacker.

Brownie Scottsville... ?

Can I try a later pet and street: Lucky DePaul... Sounds like a gambler!

Or Lady Belvedere...

Back to the wise retorts: Raymond (you remember Raymond) once was asked by the new guy on the job if he needed to grease both sides of the skidder he had been told to lubricate. Raymond replied, "Nah. One side is fine. Then you'll only have to rebuild half of it when breaks down."
