A husband wanted to have a serious talk with his wife about their budget. "Dear, we need to watch our spending," he said. 

"I know," said the wife. "I should tell you I just bought this great red dress," she said modeling it. 

"The devil is testing you," he said. 

"I know," she said. "But, he kept saying how good I looked." 

"Why didn't you turn your back on the devil," asked the husband. "I did," said the wife. "But he said it looked good from back there, too!"
