I got this joke from my sister the other day:

"Kentucky Women

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties.
The first man had married a woman from Alabama and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning.
He said it took a couple days but on the third day he came home to a clean house and dishes.

The second man had married a woman from Florida. He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the cooking. On that the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table.

The third man had married a Kentucky girl. He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day ...
most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye.
Enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher, and telephone a landscaper.

You can mess with Texas but not them Kentucky women...."

Well, my sister decided to pen an ending that fit the women in our family much better.

"by the third day...
Not only did she wash the dishes, clean the house, do the laundry and fix a huge supper of meat, potatoes, gravy, vegetables and homemade biscuits... But she also fixed the tractor, hauled the hay, bushhogged the front lot and fixed the fence. "

Now, where's my boots and coveralls?

EJ ...really wishing she could do what her sisters do...
