"It's Funny Honey" #24

This picture always makes me think of a bad joke I told at a party one night and though the joke was innocent enough it created a bizarre chain of events.
The joke was that a man was walking by a cemetery and saw a man kneeling beside a grave. "Why did you have to die! Why did you have to die!" The man wailed.
Thinking he might be able offer some comfort to the fellow the passing man walked over to him and said that he was sorry for his great loss.
The lamenting man shook his head and threw up his hands, "You don't understand," He wailed, "This was my wife's first husband!"
After I told the joke that night there were a few courteous tee-hee-hees but one man doubled over with laughter and couldn't stop. It was hysterical laughter.
Everybody gazed at him at if he had lost his senses. His wife became livid with anger. And the more she reproved him the more he laughed. It was the strangest scenario of the worst kind I had ever seen over a bad joke.
When they left that night the man was still laughing and his wife was still quarreling at him to "knock it off! Saying that the joke wasn't even funny!"
To this day I still haven't figured out what was going on especially since neither one of them had ever been married before.

Dear Char, that is a funny story! Did you feel terrible over it?
Wonderful image here. He does look like he is talking to whoever is in that grave. V.
