The following conversation
took place one morning between a wife and her husband. They were discussing
government cost cuts that they recently heard about in the paper.|
"Steve," his wife said, while reading the newspaper, "it looks like our
government is going to cut overhead and trim down the military forces. They are
going to eliminate six overaged destroyers."
To which the husband replies, "Sorry to hear that, dear. I'm sure you'll miss
your mother being gone."
