Husband: Last night, I had an awesome dream.
Husband: I dreamed I slept with the Mrs Wong next door.
Husband: Do women have such dreams too?
Wife: Well, yes. What do you think Mr Wong and I were doing during your dream?
Husband: What present would you like for our 30th anniversary?
Wife: A walking stick.
Husband: Haha … I’d gladly buy one for you. What are you getting me?

Husband: I’ve told you a million times, I was washing the car.
Wife: I saw you walk into Miss Hotbod’s house!
Husband: You didn’t ask me whose car I’ve been washing.
Wife: I could have been a star if I didn’t marry you!
Husband: What a pity. You missed the chance to get into Edison Chen’s photo album.

Husband: Why not?
Wife: My mother can squeeze more than $1000 out of you.

Girlfriend: Yes, the USD and Euro are no longer what they used to be.
Wife: This is a complete rip-off! He must be the most expensive dentist we’ve seen. Have you paid?

Wife: Don’t you dare lock the door after I’ve gone out.
Husband: Where are you going with that cleaver?
Wife: Tom’s house.
Wife: I found this knife in your drawer. Are you planning to kill me?

Friend: You bastard! What did you poison her with?

Son: No way.

Wife: Getting yourself drunk again?
Wife: Do I still exist in your mind?
Husband: Of course. That’s why I’m getting myself drunk.
Man: Pastor Ang, why do you look so moody?

Pastor Ang: I know.
Man: I feel so sad that you didn’t solemnise my marriage.
Wife: What would you do if I get kidnapped?
Husband: I’ll go to the bank and withdraw all my money.

Policeman A: Oh dear! What did you tell him?
Policeman B: I told him his wife is waiting for him at home.
Wife: I should have known that you are hopeless with women.
Husband: What makes you think so?
