Two couples were playing cards one evening.
James accidentally dropped some cards on the floor.
When he bent down under the table to pick them up, he noticed that Bill's wife's legs
were spread wide and she wasn't wearing any underwear.
Later, James went to the kitchen to get some refreshments.
Bill's wife followed and asked, "Did you see anything that you liked under there?"
Surprised by her boldness, James courageously admitted that, well, indeed he did.
She said, "Well, you can have it but it will cost you five hundred pounds"
After taking a minute or two to assess the financial situation as well as the moral
costs of this offer, James indicates that he is indeed interested.
When Friday rolled around, James showed up at Bill's house for the planned time with
his wife at two o'clock sharp and after paying her the agreed five hundred pounds, they
went to the bedroom and closed their transaction as Sue had promised.
As usual, Bill came home from work at six o'clock and upon entering the house, asks his wife abruptly, "Did James come by the house this afternoon?"
With a lump in her throat, Bill's wife answered, "Why yes, he did stop by for a few minutes this afternoon."
Her heart nearly skipped a beat when her husband curtly asked, "And did he give you five hundred pounds?".
In terror, she assumed that somehow he had found out, and after mustering up her best poker face, replied, "Well, yes, in fact he did give me five hundred pounds".
Bill, with a satisfied look on his face, surprised his wife by saying, "Good, I was hoping he did. James came by the office this morning and borrowed five hundred pounds from me.
He promised me he'd stop by our house this afternoon on his way home and pay me back."
