Joke from the pub – level 1

13/04/2011 23:25

John Stone is in the pub with his friends. He drinks a lot. He takes his glass and says, "I want to be all my life between legs of my wife!"

He gets money for these words at the pub. Because they are the best words of the night.

He goes home and tells his wife, Margaret, "I got money for the best words of the night."

She says, "Yes? Did you get money? And what were your words?"

John says, "I want to be all my life in church with my wife." 

"Oh, it is very very nice, John! Thank you." Margaret said. 

The next day, Margaret meets John's friend from the pub. They meet in the street. The man smiles and says, "John got money last night at the pub because he spoke about you, Margaret." 

She says, "Yes, I know. He told me. And it was a little shock for me. Because he was there only twice in the last four years. The first time he sleeps. And the second time I must pull his ears because he doesn’t want to be there."
