Joke of The Day

 A Blonde is watching the news with her husband.
The newscaster says, "Six Brazilian men die in a skydiving accident."
The blonde starts crying. Turning to her husband she says sobbing,
"That's horrible".
Confused, he responds, "Yes dear, it is sad, but they were skydiving. And, well, there is that risk involved."
After a few minutes, the blonde, still sobbing says, "Honey, how many is a Brazilian?"
