Joke of The Day

 Dave worked in a pickle factory.
He had been employed there for many years when he came home one day to confess to his wife that he had a terrible compulsion. He had an urge to stick his penis into the pickle slicer.
His wife suggested that he should see a sex therapist to talk about it, but Dave said he would be too embarrassed. He vowed to overcome the compulsion on his own.
One day a few weeks later, Dave came home and his wife could see at once that something was seriously wrong.
"What's wrong, Dave?" she asked.
"Do you remember that I told you how I had this tremendous urge to put my penis into the pickle slicer?"
"Oh, Dave, you didn't!" she exclaimed.
"Yes, I did." he replied. "My God, Dave, what happened?"
"I got fired."
"No, Dave. I mean, what happened with the pickle slicer?"
"Oh...she got fired too."

Quote of The Day
