A man was sitting reading his paper when his wife hit him on the head with a frying pan.
“What was that for?” the man demanded.
The wife replied, “That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it that I found in your pants pocket.”
The man said, “When I was at the races last week Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on.”
The wife apologized and went on with the housework.
Three days later the man is watching TV when his wife bashes him on the head with an even bigger frying pan, knocking him unconscious.
Upon re-gaining consciousness, the man asked why she’d hit him again.
She said, “Your horse phoned today.”
