A man is reading his newspaper. His wife comes to him and hits him on the head with a frying pan.

He asks, “Why did you hit me?”

“I found a piece of paper in your pocket with ‘Betty Sue’ written on it.”

He says, “Honey, ‘Betty Sue’ is the name of the horse which I want to buy.”

The wife says nothing.

Three days later, he is reading his newspaper when she comes to him and hits him very hard with a frying pan again.

He asks, “Why did you hit me again?”

She answers, “Your horse called.”
