Daily Joke: Wife Gets Home Late and Cuckoo Clock Starts Up
A woman decided to go out on a fun ladies’ night with her friend, and she promised her husband to be back by midnight. But a cuckoo clock almost ruined everything.
After a week of working non-stop, doing house chores, and caring for her kids, a woman gets an invitation to go out and get loose with her friends on a Friday night.
Her husband stays back to take care of the kids, and the grateful wife promises to be back by midnight. However, as the hours passed and the margaritas went down, midnight passed and she didn't notice the hour.
By the time all the women piled into a taxi to go back home, they were all quite inebriated. Still, the woman was determined not to let her husband discover she arrived so late.
However, as she entered her home, the cuckoo clock on the wall started up, striking three cuckoo sounds to mark the hour. Afraid of her husband waking up to this, the woman came up with a quick solution: she imitated the cuckoo sound nine more times.
The woman was proud of herself for coming up with such a clever solution to cover up her lateness. Despite her inebriated state, she realized that three cuckoos plus her nine cuckoos equaled twelve, it was the perfect cover-up.
The next morning, as they sat at the table, the husband asked the woman at what time she arrived. Proudly, she stated, "Midnight, as I promised!"
The husband, impassive as he drank his coffee, then said they should fix or replace their cuckoo clock. When the woman nervously asked why, the husband replied:
"Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, cleared its throat, cuckooed four more times, and cursed."
Under the incredulous but amused look of his wife, the man continued. "Then, it cuckooed another three times, giggled, then cuckooed twice more before tripping over the coffee table."
