The Careless Husband

A man was sitting reading his newspaper when his wife hit him round the back of the head with a frying-pan.

'What was that for?' the husband asked.

The wife replied: “That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it that I found in your pants pocket.”

The husband said: “When I was at the races last week, Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on.” The wife apologised and went on with her washing.

Three days later the man was watching TV when his wife bashed him on the head with an even bigger frying-pan, knocking him unconscious. Upon regaining consciousness the man asked why she had hit him again.

His wife replied: “Your horse just phoned.”
