Mike was going to be married to Karen, so his father
sat him down for a little chat.

He said, 'Mike, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our
honeymoon suite I took off my pants, handed them to your mother,and
said, 'Here - try these on.'

She did and said, 'These are too big,;I can't wear them.'
I replied, 'Exactly, I wear the pants in this family and I always will.'
'Ever since that night we never had any problems.'

'Hmmm,' said Mike. He thought that might be a good thing to try. On his
honeymoon, Mike took off his pants and said to Karen, 'Here - try these
on.'
She tried them on and said, 'These are too large. They don't fit me.'
Mike said, 'Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will.
I don't want you to ever forget that.'

Then Karen took off her pants and handed them to Mike. She said,
'Here-you try on mine.'

He did and said, 'I can't get into your pants.'
Karen said, 'Exactly. And if you don't change your smart ass attitude,
you never will.' [(#)]
