The Wife and Me

• My wife told me I was crazy to build a car out of spaghetti. She said it would never work. You should have seen the look on her face when I drove pasta!!

• My wife asked me to pass her the lip balm. I gave her a tube of super glue by mistake. She’s still not speaking to me.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What are you cooking, Angel…food??” Bee Boop!!
