A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the
evening. They turned on a night light, turned on the
phone answering machine, covered their pet parakeet
and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local
cab company and requested a taxi.
The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door
to leave their house. The cat they had put out into
the yard ran back into the house. They didn't want the
cat shut in the house because she always tried to eat
the bird. The wife got into the taxi while the husband
went back inside to get the cat.
The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. Waiting
in the cab, the wife didn't want the driver to know
the house would be empty for the night. She explained
to the taxi driver that her husband would be out soon.
"He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my
mother." A few minutes later, the husband got into the
"Sorry I took so long," he said as they drove away.
"Stupid witch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke
her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She
tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck. Then I
had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from
scratching me. But it worked. I hauled her fat ass
downstairs and threw her out into the back yard! She
better not poop in the roses!"
The cabdriver hit a parked car..
