Joke of the week

Three friends married women from three states.

The first man married a woman from Wisconsin. He told her she was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man married a woman from Minnesota. He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and cooking. The first day he didn’t see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a girl from Colorado. He ordered her to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed and delicious food on the table. He said the first day he didn’t see anything, the second day he didn’t see anything, but by the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye and his arm was healed enough he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. However, he still has some difficulty when he pees.
