A wealthy man is having an affair with an Italian woman and has continued the affair for a few years.
One night, over dinner at the mistress’s favorite Italian restaurant, she confides in him that she’s pregnant.
Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he offers to pay her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to have the child. And if she stayed in Italy, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.
She agrees, but asks how he would know when the baby was born. To keep everything discreet, he tells her to mail him a post card, and write “Spaghetti” on the back. Upon receiving the postcard, he would then arrange for child support.
About 9 months later, the man comes home to his extremely confused wife.
“Honey,” she replies, “you received a very strange post card today.”
“Oh, just give it to me and I’ll explain it later,” he says.
The wife obeys, and watches as her husband reads the card, turns white, and faints.
On the card was written, “Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one without.”via email from Duane McDowell, Thu, 14 Sep 2006 11:02:58 -0700
