Headache Again...
A husband emerged from the bathroom naked and
was climbing into bed when his wife complained, as
usual, 'I have a headache.'
'Perfect,' her husband said, 'I was just in the bath-
room powdering my penis with crushed aspirin. You
can take it orally or as a suppository; it's up to you.
