With no warning and clear out of the blue, an attorney said to his wife, "Honey, I have invited a friend home for supper tonight."
His wife replied, "What? Are you crazy? The house is a mess, I didn't have time to go shopping, all the dishes are dirty, and I don't feel like cooking a fancy meal tonight!"
The husband said, "I know all that."
"Then why in the world did you invite your friend for supper tonight?" asked the wife.
The attorney answered, "Because the poor fool is thinking about getting married."
Unfortunately, it was then things took a decidedly turn for the worse.
The guest, a 25 year old stud of man later, after this impromptu dinner invitation, began a clandestine affair with the attorney's wife, resulting in a full blown affair and the collapse of the attorney's marriage.
Sadly, the attorney later turned to drugs and sleeping with prostitutes.
He contracted AIDS, lost his license to practice law and is now homeless....all because of his attempts to make a very old joke.
