A judge called the wife aside in his chamber to interview her regarding her pending divorce, and if possible save the marriage. He asked, "What are the grounds for your divorce?"
She replied, "About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by."
"No," judge said, "I mean what is the foundation of this case?"
"It is made of concrete, brick and mortar", she responded.
"I mean," he continued, "What are your relations like?"
"I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband's parents."
He said, "Do you have a real grudge?"
"No," she replied, "We have a two-car carport and have never really needed any garage."
"Please. . ." judge pleaded, "is there any infidelity in your marriage?"
"Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your question is yes."
"Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?"
"Yes," she responded, "About twice a week he gets up earlier than I do."
Finally, in frustration, the judge asked, "Lady, why do you want a divorce?"
"Oh you mean divorce, I don't want a divorce," she replied. "I have never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He says he has a serious communication problem with me!, But judge didn't I answer all your questions right?"
