At a comedy club, the stand-up comedian walks up to the microphone and says, “You know, they say laughter is the best medicine, but I think they got it wrong. I believe the real prescription is a good dose of humor about relationships!”
He pauses, scanning the audience, and continues, “I recently read a self-help book that said, ‘If you want to improve your marriage, find a woman who loves you for your personality.’ So, I bought a dog.”
The crowd erupts in laughter.
The comedian grins and adds, “I asked my wife what she wanted for our anniversary. She said, ‘Nothing would make me happier than a diamond necklace.’ So, I bought her nothing.”
More laughter fills the room.
Shifting gears, he says, “You know, they say opposites attract. My wife and I are so opposite; I’m a morning person, and she’s not a person until noon.”
The audience chuckles, and he concludes, “In the end, they also say communication is key in a relationship. So, I told my wife I’d be more romantic if she were more realistic. That’s when I realized laughter is indeed the best medicine – especially when dealing with the mysteries of love and marriage!”
The room bursts into laughter once again.
