Silly Sunday: Marriage Philosophy

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!
  1. Post a joke.
  2. Link Up with the URL to your joke in the Linky Tools Widget.
  3. Read my joke.
  4. Leave a comment to tell me how much you enjoyed my joke.
  5. Try and visit a few others participating in Silly Sunday.
  6. Go to Sandee's site, linked above, and get the Silly Sunday code for your blog, too!

The only part of the conversation i heard was #2 Son saying, "Calm down, babe!" to his wife, Daughter-in-Law Becky.

Danger, Will Robinson! i called out, laughing.  When he asked what that meant, i told him the reference, and that the sooner he realized you never say "Calm down" to an angry or upset wife, the better off he would be.  Her glare at him told him i knew of what i spoke for once.

Boudreaux, he be havin' trouble wit' Clothile some time, jes' like all marry people do.  One day, he be waxin' philosophy (as he say) at de Hubba Hubba Bar & Lounge.

"Mais, I done decide what marriage is!  It be de institution two people use to solve de problems dey din't have before dey get married!"

  2. Good one Boudreaux! If I might add some advice, when you feel like saying "calm down" or "relax" you probably should substitute and say, "I'm sorry."

  3. You are most correct. Telling an upset woman to calm down is not the right course of action.

    Loved the joke as always and it's spot on.

    Have a fabulous Silly Sunday. ☺

  5. "Calm down, babe!" is a statement that any man should never say to any woman. Ha,ha,ha.

    Have a great evening Mimi.
