A wife and her husband were having a dinner party...
...for some important guests. The wife was very excited about this
and wanted everything to be perfect. At the very last minute, she
realized that she didn't have any snails for the dinner party, so
she asked her husband to run down to the beach with the bucket to
gather some snails. Very grudgingly he agreed.
He took the bucket, walked out the door, down the steps, and out to
the beach. As he was collecting the snails, he noticed a beautiful
woman strolling alongside the water just a little further down the
beach. He kept thinking to himself, "Wouldn't it be great if she
would even just come down and talk to me?" He went back to
gathering the snails.
All of a sudden he looked up, and the beautiful woman was standing
right over him. They started talking and she invited him back to
They ended up spending the night together. At seven o'clock the
next morning he woke up and exclaimed, "Oh no! My wife's dinner
party!" He gathered all his clothes, put them on real fast, grabbed
his bucket, and ran out the door. He ran down the beach all the way
to his apartment. He ran up the stairs of his apartment. He was in
such a hurry that when he got to the top of the stairs, he dropped
the bucket of snails.
There were snails all down the stairs. The door opened just then,
with his very angry wife standing in the doorway, wondering where
he's been all this time. He looked at the snails all down the
steps, then he looked at her, then back at the snails, and said,
"Come on guys, we're almost there!"
