50th Wedding Anniversary

Published on Thu 14 October 1999

A couple goes out to dinner to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. On the way home she notices a tear in his eye and asks whether he is getting sentimental because they are celebrating 50 wonderful years together.

He replies, "No, I was thinking about the time before we got married. Your father threatened me with a shotgun and said he would have me thrown in jail for 50 years if I did not marry you. Tomorrow I would have been a free man!"
