After an entire day of hoping to catch something to take home to his wife for dinner to no avail, a husband tried to trick his wife into believing that he had actually succeeded, but she was a step ahead of him.


A man named Jim who loved to fish was having an awful day fishing on the lake once, with the unfortunate fisherman spending most of it sitting under a burning sun without getting a single bite.

Shattered, the poor fellow made a quick stop at the supermarket on his way home, with the intention of buying four catfish to take home to his wife. Once there, he greeted the fish salesman and placed his order.

“Pick four large ones and throw them at me, will you,” were the failed fisherman’s words, and they certainly surprised the salesman, who couldn’t help but ask, “why do you want me to throw them at you?”

The strange (but regular) customer then revealed the reason for his curious request, admitting to the salesman that he wanted to tell his wife that he had caught the catfish himself.


Listening to the customer’s reasons and trying his best not to contradict him (after all, the customer is always right), the salesman told the fisherman, “Okay, but I suggest that you take the orange trout.”

“Why’s that?” the customer proceeded to ask the salesman, to which the latter replied, “Because your wife came in earlier today and said that if you came by, I should tell you to take orange trout. That’s what she’d like for supper tonight.”



The second joke, also brought to you from Stars at 60, also digs into the peculiar relationship of an animal lover and his wife, and it doesn’t end too well for the latter, as you are about to see.

Another man, named unknown, was once walking down the street holding a baby monkey in his arms, and he ran into an old friend that couldn’t refrain from stopping him to ask him about the primate.


“I just bought this monkey as a pet. We have no children, so he’s going to live with us – just like one of the family. He’ll even eat at the same table with us,” the determined pet owner answered.

Immediately interested, the second man was eager to know more about his friend’s strange taste for pets. “But where will he sleep?” the man’s friend asked, to which the first man replied, “He’ll sleep in the same bed with me and my wife.”


“But what about the smell?” the monkey’s owner’s friend asked, worried. To which the eccentric man answered without hesitation, “Oh, he’ll just have to get used to it, the same way I did.”
