The dangers of horsing around

A MAN is sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife hits him round the head with a frying pan and says: "That's for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it I found in your trouser pocket."

He explains: "When I was at the races Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on." She apologises.

Three days later the man's wife bashes him on the head with an even bigger frying pan and says: "Your horse phoned."
