This man was sitting quietly reading his paper one morning, peacefully enjoying himself, when his wife sneaks up behind him and whacks him on the back of his head with a huge frying pan. <br /> <br /> "What was that for?" <br /> <br /> "What was that piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name Marylou written on it" <br /> <br /> "Oh honey, remember two weeks ago when I went to the horse races? Marylou was the name of one of the horses I bet on." <br /> <br /> The wife is satisfied, apologizes, and goes off to do work around the house. <br /> <br /> Three days later he is once again sitting in his chair reading and she repeats the frying pan swatting. <br /> <br /> "What was that for this time?" <br /> <br /> "Your horse phoned!"
