Couple jokes are often about husband and wife outsmarting each other.


In this joke you’re about to read, the husband found a clever way to accomplish a task given by his wife.  

He walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and putting them in a jar.

The bartender and nearby customers could not help but wonder exactly what the man was doing.

The man just kept on ordering martini after martini, oblivious of the curious stares.

After the jar was filled and all the drinks consumed, he got up to leave, staggering a little. A puzzled customer stopped him, saying, “Excuse me. What was that all about?”

The man, already tipsy, replied,

“Nothing. My wife just sent me out for a jar of olives.”


A clever way out

Here’s a bonus joke about a man who kept his stinginess until his dying moment.

The man wanted his wife to bury all his money with him.

She could hardly believe his incredibly selfish request, but he managed to guilt her into promising "with all her heart" that she would do as he asked.

But just before her husband's funeral, she came up with a clever solution. 

The wife sat right at the front at the funeral, with her best friend seated next to her in support. As the undertakers were about to close the casket, she asked them to wait a moment for her to place something in the coffin.

Her friend watched in disbelief as she approached the casket and placed a box inside it. Then the coffin was locked, and the undertakers carried it away. “I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man,” her friend asked the wife.

“I sure did,” answered the wife. “I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.”
