This is an old joke but one I never get tired of...
For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman. 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
on the back. He would then arrange for the child support payments to
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 fainted.
On the card was written: "Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, and
Spaghetti. Three with meatballs, two without.
Send extra sauce."
