A man calls home to his wife and says, "Honey I have been asked to go fishing up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We'll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I've been wanting so could you please pack enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and tackle box? We're leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick my things up."
"Oh! And please pack my new blue silk pajamas."
The wife thinks this sounds a bit fishy, but, being the good wife, she does exactly what her husband asked.
The following weekend he came home a little tired, but otherwise looking good. The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish.
He says, "Yes! Lots of Walleye, some Bluegill, and a few Pike. But why didn't you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you?”
The wife replies, "I did, they're in your tackle box."
And, my new favorite quote:
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. - Groucho Marx
US comedian with the Marx Brothers (1890 - 1977)
