~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A husband stepped on one of those penny scales that tell you your fortune and weight and dropped in a coin.
"Listen to this," he said to his wife, showing her a small, white card. "It says I'm energetic, bright, resourceful and a great lover."
"Yes," his wife nodded, "and it has your weight wrong, too."
