Bob: Why is your dog watching me so attentively while I am eating?
Sam: I don't know. Maybe it's because you are eating out of its plate.
A young couple got married and left on their honeymoon1. When they got back, the bride2 immediately called her mother. Her mother asked, "How was the honeymoon?"
"Oh, mama," she replied, "the honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic..." Suddenly she burst out crying3. "But, mama, as soon as we returned, Sam started using the most horrible language... things I'd never heard before! I mean, all these awful 4-letter words! You've got to come get me and take me home. Please mama!"
"Sarah, Sarah," her mother said. "Calm down!4 Tell me, what could be so awful? What 4-letter words?"
"Please, don't make me tell you, mama," sobbed5 the daughter, "I'm so embarrassed6 they're just too awful! Come get me, please!" "Darling, baby, you must tell me what has made you so upset... Tell your mother these horrible7 4-letter words!"
Still sobbing, the bride said, "Oh, mama... words like DUST, WASH, IRON, COOK..!"
