Joke of The Day

 The other day, while Mike was seeing his shrink, the doctor asked
him what he looked for in a woman.
Mike replied, "Big boobs."
"No, I meant for a serious relationship."
Mike said, "Oh, seriously big boobs."
"No, no, no. I mean what do you look for in the one woman you
want to spend the rest of your life with?"
"Spend the rest of my life with one woman?" said Mike "No woman's
boobs are that big."
