Do you ever wonder how fights begin?

by Dick Mac

This list of jokes was forwarded to me by my friend, Dave. They are not original but merit publication!

One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift. The next year, I didn't buy her anything.

When she asked me why, I explained, "Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"

And that's how the fight started.


I asked my wife, "Where do you want to go for our anniversary?"

It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation. "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!'" She smiled.

So I suggested, "How about the kitchen?"

And that's how the fight started.


My wife and I were watching 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' while we were in bed.

I turned to her and asked, "Do you want to have Sex?"

"No," she answered. So I asked, "'Is that your final answer?"

She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, "Yes."

So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."

And that's how the fight started.


I took my wife to a restaurant and oddly the waiter took my order first.

"I'll have the rump steak, medium rare, please."

He said, "Aren't you worried about mad cow?"

"Nah, she can order for herself."

And that's how the fight started.


My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping the channels. She asked, "What's on TV?"

I said, "Dust."

And then the fight started.


My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.

She explained, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in about 3 seconds."

I bought her a bathroom scale.

And that's how the fight started.


My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.

I asked her, "Do you know him?"

"Yes," she sighed. "He's my old boyfriend. He took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and he hasn't been sober since."

"My God!" I said. "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?'"

And that's how the fight started.


I rear-ended a car this morning.

There we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car.

You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed that little things just seem funny?

Yeah, well I couldn't believe it: the other driver was a DWARF!

He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted, "I AM NOT HAPPY!"

So, I looked down at him and said, "Well, then which one are you?"

And that's how the fight started.


When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed; but, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the shed, the football, making beer.

Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.

When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a moment and then went into the house. I came back and handed her a toothbrush saying, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."

The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.
