If you marry a girl from Massachusetts

(This came to me by way of a forward of a forward of a forward…you know how that works. This one actually made me laugh, though, perhaps because I’m a girl from Massachusetts. Because it was a forward of a forward of a forward, I don’t know who to attribute it to. Sorry, funny person!)

Three friends married women from different parts of the country.

The first man married a woman from Wisconsin. He told her that she was to … Read More »
