Joke from the pub – level 3

13/04/2011 23:27

John Stone is in the pub with his friends. He has drunk a lot. He puts up a glass and says, "I want to spend my life between legs of my wife!"

That wins him the top prize at the pub for the best words of the night.

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

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

John says, "I want to spend my life sitting in church next to my wife." 

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

The next day, Margaret meets one of John's drinking friends on the street corner. The man laughs and says, "John won the prize last night at the pub with words about you, Margaret." 

She says, "Yes, I know. He told me. And I was a little surprised myself because he has only been in there twice in the last four years. Once he was sleeping, and the second time I had to pull him by the ears to get him there."
