A Greek Tragedy in 10 seconds

Based upon a lame joke I made up in my head ages ago but never told anyone until today, and presented without apology.

Wife: Euripides?

Husband: Yeah, got caught on a nail.

Wife: Tragic.

Husband: Eumenides?

Wife: Uh, no. The sewing kit’s in the drawer. Eumenidoze yourself.

Now don’t get mad.  I did warn you it would be lame, but you went on and read it anyway.

Tragically, you’ve only yourself to blame.

      It has occurred to me that maybe I don’t completely “get” this, but it reminds me of the Marx brothers, and it made me laugh. Thanks for sharing it.

        Thanks. It’s just a play on the sound of the names. I had to explain it to my husband, who said, after the explanation, that yes, he got that, but he was expecting there to be a deeper meaning. Humph.

Got something to say?
