The Mystic


In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the
           Mystic delivered grave news:

         
"There's no easy way to tell you this, so I'll just be
           blunt. Prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will
           die a violent and horrible death this year."
 
           Visibly shaken, Carol stared at the woman's lined face,
           then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands.
 
           She took a few deep breaths to compose herself - and to
           stop her mind racing. She simply had to know.
 
           She met the Fortune Teller's gaze, steadied her voice and
           asked, "Will I be acquitted?"
 
          [For some reason, women tend to like this joke a lot.]
 
Thanks Hal

  6. More husbands than anyone realizes need to be wearing helmets and body armor around the house.

    Just like Bob when he plays Dodgeball.
