"Yes, yes it was!" said the motorist.
"Well, don't pay any attention to him," continued the farmer. "He doesn't know the first thing about cars."

Then he asked, "Do you ever watch your husband's face while you're making love?"
"I did once," she replied.
"And how did he look?"
"Very angry, "she said.
"That's interesting," said the psychiatrist. "You say you have only once seen your husband's face during sex? That in itself is unusual. Tell me, what were the circumstances that led you to see his face on the occasion he appeared so angry?"
Replied the wife, "He was looking through the window at me."

"Uh, oh yeah, OK," responded the kid.

When she got back, Dad asked, "Well how much did you give the boy this time?"
Mom said, "Oh, I wrote two cheques, one for $50, and the other for $1,000."
"That's $1,050!!!" yelled Dad. "Are you crazy???"
"Don't worry hon," Mom said, as she kissed Dad on the on top of his bald head, "I taped the $50 cheque to the cover of his book, but I put the $1,000 one somewhere between the pages in Chapter 19!"

After their baby was born, the panicked father went to see the obstetrician.
"Doctor," the man said, "I don't mind telling you, but I'm a little upset because my daughter has red hair. She can't possibly be mine."
"Nonsense," the doctor said. "Even though you and your wife both have black hair, one of your ancestors may have contributed red hair to the gene pool."
"It isn't possible," the man insisted. "This can't be, our families on both sides had jet-black hair for generations."
"Well," said the doctor, "let me ask you this. How often do you have sex?"
The man seemed a bit ashamed. "I've been working very hard for the past year. We only made love once or twice every few months."
"Well, there you have it!" The doctor said confidently. "It's rust."
