Humor is indeed subjective, and each of us has our own preferences when it comes to jokes. Some jokes might have us bursting into laughter, while others simply bring a smile to our faces.
One of the most delightful moments in humor occurs when something entirely unexpected takes place. While some jokes telegraph their punchlines, the ones that catch us off guard often evoke the heartiest laughter.
That’s why we’re thrilled to share the joke below—it begins amusingly and only gets better as the story unfolds.
A wife was in bed with her lover when she heard her husband’s key in the door.
“Stay where you are,” she said.
“He’s so drunk he won’t even notice you’re in bed with me.”
The husband lurched into bed, but a few minutes later, through a drunken haze, he saw six feet sticking out at the end of the bed. He turned to his wife:
“Hey, there are six feet in this bed. There should only be four. What’s going on?”
“You’re so drunk you miscounted,” said the wife.
Get out of bed and try again. You can see better from over there.
The husband climbed out of bed and counted.
One, two, three, four, you’re right.
