She said: I received a marriage proposal in my email today.
He looked up from his computer screen, raised his eyebrows and said, “Oh?”
She said, “Yes, and I’m thinking about accepting it.”
His eyebrows raised even further and he seemed at a loss for words.
She said, “It was a pretty tempting proposal and you and I could both benefit from it.”
Now he looked really confused, but much less concerned. “How’s that?” He asked.
She said, “Maybe if I just read you the letter:”
I respectfully offer to be your bride. I cook. I clean. I laundry your shirt and do this ironing. I no complain. I be good wife. You send me come to America.
She said, “See. The house will be cleaned, the meals will be cooked. The laundry will be done. I’d kind of like having a wife.”
He shook his head and turned back to his computer. “Honey the only thing she wants to clean — if it even is a she — is your wallet!”
She was greatly disappointed. Having a wife would be nice.
