joke of the day
Wife: "There's trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor."
Husband: "Water in a carburetor? That's ridiculous."
Wife: "I tell you the car has water in the carburetor."
Husband: "You don't even know what a carburetor is. I'll check it out. Where's the car?"
Wife: "In the pool."
