For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian
> One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not
> wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum
> of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child.
> If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide
> child support until the child turned 18. She agreed, but asked how he
> would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to
> simply mail him a post card, and write 'Spaghetti' on the back. He would
> then arrange for the child support payments to begin.
> One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused
> wife. 'Honey', she said, 'you received a very strange post card
> today'. 'Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later', he said. The
> wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and
> On the card was written:
> 'Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.
> Three with meatballs, two without.
> 'Send extra sauce.'
