Toilet Humour Malfunction






PHOTO PROMPT – © Ted Strutz

“A toilet!”
“Isn’t she beautiful?”
“You bought a toilet for my birthday.”
“Not just any toilet, it’s vintage.”
“You bought me an old, used toilet.”
“But it’ll be worth a bomb in a few years.”
“It’s worth a bomb now, wait while I call the Ministry of Defence.”
“It’s got flowers in.”
“Flowers? What else are you going to put in it…No, don’t answer that.”
“I’ll take it back if you don’t like it.”
“I’ll tell you what’s also in the toilet, our marriage!”
Alison stormed off.
‘She’s tired,’ he thought. ‘She’ll think differently when she’s had a good sleep.’
