Joke about a frying pan - level 3, A12
A man is reading his newspaper when his wife walks up behind him and hits him on the back of 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 doesn’t say anything.
Three days later he is reading his newspaper when she walks up behind him and hits him even harder with a frying pan.
He asks, “Why did you hit me again?”
She answers, “Your horse called.”
