Joke of The Day

 Mary was asleep in bed when her husband, John, crashed through the front door at 3 am, waking her up.
He staggered through the hallway and tried to get up the stairs.
'What are you doing?' Mary shouted.
John replied, 'I'm trying to get this gallon of beer up the stairs.'
'Leave it down there, Johnny', Mary bellowed.
'I can't, 'John replied, 'I've drunk it.'
