TALE

A MAN AND HIS WIFE WERE ON THE WAY HOME FROM A LONG
VACATION, PULLING A HUGE TRAILER BEHIND THEIR CAR.
THE HUSBAND HAD DRIVEN FOR MANY HOURS AND WAS TIRED.
HIS WIFE TOOK OVER THE WHEEL AND (HE) WENT TO LIE DOWN
IN THE TRAILER IN HIS SHORTS. HIS WIFE PUT ON THE
BRAKES VERY SUDDENLY, AFTER ALMOST MISSING A RED LIGHT.
THE MAN, FRIGHTENED BY THE SUDDEN STOP, RAN OUT OF THE
TRAILER (STILL IN HIS SHORTS) TO SEE WHAT WAS WRONG.
AT THE SAME TIME THE LIGHT CHANGED AND THE WIFE SPED
AWAY LEAVING HIM STRANDED. AT THIS VERY TIME, AN OLD
FRATERNITY BROTHER OF THIS MAN'S DROVE BY AND PICKED
HIM UP. HE ARRIVED HOME BEFORE HIS WIFE AND WAS
STANDING ON THE BACK PORCH (STILL IN HIS SHORTS) WHEN
SHE PULLED IN THE DRIVEWAY. SHE WAS SO STARTLED
THAT SHE FORGOT TO STOP THE CAR AND RAN RIGHT THROUGH
THE BACK OF THE GARAGE.
