Home Economics

The Mrs. is putting a new trashbag in the kitchen wastebasket.

Bob:  What brand did you get this time?

She:  I don't know; they were cheap.

He:  I know.  Don't get them anymore.

She:  Why not?  I don't have any problem with them.

He:  No.  All you do is put them in the basket.  I ripped three holes in one this morning before I could get it tied up.

can also be dismissed without evidence.”  --Joe Joseph

A Bad Day

I paid you top dollar for that birth certificate, and you can't even disguise the fact that it's a fake?!

Bob's Testimony

The only thing more trying than living with a woman is trying to live without one.
