Strike One!

I heard about this country couple; they were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, and it was said that they’ve never argued before; not even once! Someone then asked them the secret of their success, and the husband looked at his wife as if he was pleading for permission to respond, and she nodded her head, giving him the go ahead to do so.

He then went on to explain that as they were leaving the church, going on their honey moon, their horse stopped suddenly and refused to move. His wife got off, looked at the horse in the eyes, and said strike one. The horse moved forward immediately, but stopped in a bit. The woman got off the second time, looked at the horse in the eyes, and said strike two. Again the horse moved forward and stopped almost instantaneously. This time, she lost her temper, jumped off, pulled out her gun and shot the animal dead.

Immediately, the husband became really angry and shouted, ‘’honey, why on earth did you do that, you can’t just kill an animal for fun?’’.  Then, she looked at him straight in the eyes and calmly said ‘’honey, strike one!’’

*Attention please: This joke is only meant to brighten your day; it has nothing to do with religion. Thank you.
