A fella was reading his paper when his wife sneaks up behind him and whacks him with a frying pan.
"What was that for?" he asked.
She said, "That's was for the piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name, Mary Lou, written on it.
He replied, "A week ago when I went to the horse races, Mary Lou was one of the names I bet on."
The wife apologized and all was forgiven.
Three days later, he is again sitting in the chair when she nailed him with an even bigger frying pan. When he comes to, he asks, "What the heck was that for?"
She answered, "Your horse just phoned."
