Mistress Humor




Two Ladies Talking in Heaven

1st woman: Hi! Carol,

2nd woman: Hi! Sylvia. How’d you die?

1st woman: I froze to death.

2nd woman: How horrible!

1st woman: It wasn’t so bad…. After I quit shaking from the cold, I began to get warm & sleepy, and finally died a peaceful death. What about you?

2nd woman: I died of a massive heart attack. I suspected that my husband was cheating, so I came home early to catch him in the act. But instead, I found him all by himself in the den watching TV.

1st woman: So, what happened?

2nd woman: I was so sure there was another woman there somewhere that I started running all over the house looking. I ran up into the attic and searched, and down into the basement. Then I went through every closet and checked under all the beds. I kept this up until I had looked everywhere, and finally I became so exhausted that I just keeled over with a heart attack and died.

1st woman: Too bad you didn’t look in the freezer—we’d both still be alive.

  1. Thanks for the yuk-yuk, MPM.

  2. This gave me the chills (and I am not even the mistress… ). I showed it to my husband. He laughed. Hmmm.

    • Yes, the joke appeals to a morbid sense of humor, and it does not surprise me that this joke might divide along gender lines. A man sent it to me.
      I am always interested in humor, how it works by tapping into taboo subjects and makes us laugh while, in this case, slightly grimacing.

  3. This was a good one! I have forwarded it to a friend of mine in Arkansas who is the consummate joke-teller and asked him to add it to his repertoire so that next time I see him he can trot it out for me. Yes, this was “morbid” but looking at “morbidity” even in a humorous fashion is very good for the soul. You go girl!

  4. Agree wholeheartedly, 21st. So glad you got a chuckle out of it.
