Bert's Joke of the Month!
And Then The Fight Started..
My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, "What's on the TV?" I said, "Dust"......
And then the fight started...
My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds." I bought her a set of scales.
And then the fight started....
When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive...so, I took her to a gas station.
And then the fight started....
I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first. "I'll have the strip steak, medium rare please." He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?". I said "Nah, she can order for herself."
And then the fight started...
