Robin’s 2 cents

Leena was tired of her husband coming home drunk, so she decided to scare him one night. She put on a devil costume and hid behind a tree to intercept him on the way home. When her husband walked by, she jumped out an stood before him with red horns, long tail and pitchfork.

“Who are you?” he slurred.

“I’m the devil,” Leena answered.

“Well, come home with me,” he said. “I’m married to your sister.”
