INTRODUCTION Today’s Special: “A Maternal Funny”
Two women came before wise King Solomon, dragging between them a young man in a three-piece suit.
“This young CPA agreed to marry my daughter,” said the first one.
“No! He agreed to marry MY daughter,” said the other.
And so they haggled before the King, until he demanded silence. “My sword! Bring me my biggest sword,” said Solomon, “and we shall cut the young man in half. Each of you shall receive a half.”
“Fine. Sounds good to me,” said the first lady.
But the other woman said, “Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let this other woman’s daughter marry him.”
The wise king did not hesitate a moment. “Indeed, the accountant must marry the first lady’s daughter,” he proclaimed.
“But she was willing to hack him in two!” exclaimed the king’s court.
“Precisely!” said wise King Solomon. “That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law.”
