You do the Math

A lawyer writes a letter to his wife Janie… My Dear Janie, You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 57 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don’t be upset —- I shall be home before midnight. When he came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table: My “Dearest Husband” , I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 57 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 57 years old. As a math teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old. As a successful lawyer who has an excellent knowledge of math, you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small difference – 18 goes into 57 a lot more times than 57 goes into 18. Therefore, I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.

A mathematician stumbles home drunk at 3 a.m., his wife is furious. “You SWORE that you’d be home by 11:45!” she yelled. – “No,” slurs the mathematician… “I said I’d be home by a quarter of 12.”


That was a long walk for a math joke…


I’ll say one thing about that 18 year old tennis coach – he’s got balls.


Despite the punch line this joke got my undivided attention


Another happy marriage!
