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?"

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

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

3. 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.

And getting the last word in your house means "Yes Dear"

6. Poor left brain

7. public int HusbandShoppingMilkCartons() {
intMilkCartons = 1;
if (boolStoreHasEggs) {
intMilkCartons = 6;
}
return (intMilkCartons);
}

8. 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!
