Quartet” with some straw hat oldies.
  A husband and wife were shopping in Wal-Mart. The guypicked up a case of Budweiser and put it in their cart.
She said: “What do you think you are doing?” He replied,“They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans” “Put them back,we can’t afford ‘em.” They continued shopping. A few
aisles further on, the wife picked up a $20 jar of face
cream and put it in the basket. “What do you think you’redoing?” asked the husband. “It’s my
face cream. It makes
me look beautiful,” she replied. The guy retorted, “Sodoes 24 cans of Budweiser, and it’s half the price!”
 He should be out of intensive care in a week or so.
