    Logic

    Read it several times. It takes a while to sink in.


    A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get 6."

    A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

    The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"

    He replied, "They had eggs."



    Makes perfect sense to me..............and there's the problem.

    Great joke. I had to explain to my wife why it's funny. She's kinda slow on the uptake.

    There was a comedienne who told a story of how she sent her husband out with a shopping list. They were numbered 1,2,3 etc. up to 12.

    He came back with 1 dozen eggs, 2 gallons of milk, 3 watermelons, 4 six packs.....

    BTW, I think the husband Jim told us about was a sensible fellow, did just what the missus told him to.

    A) There's a reason we try to not let the hubby do the grocery shopping (this is a secret only known to women)

    B) To get just 6 eggs, would have made the hubby have to figure out how to tear/cut the dozen egg carton in half without feeling guilty (common practice among women)

    Yup making the husband feel guilty is quite common among women!
