Before It Starts

A man came home from work, sat down in his favourite chair, turned on the TV, and said to his wife, “Quick, bring me a beer before it starts.”


She looked a little puzzled, but brought him a beer. When he finished it, he said, “Quick, bring me another beer. It’s going to start.”


This time she looked a little angry, but brought him a beer. When that beer was gone, he said, “Quick, another beer before it starts.”


“That’s it!” She blows her top, “You lazy thing you! You waltz in here, flop down, don’t even say hello to me and then expect me to run around like your slave. Don’t you realise that I cook and clean and wash and iron all day long?”


The husband sighed. “Oh dear, it has started.”
