Red Death's Response to Bear's Joke About Writing

Only seems fair. The Bear woke up to this suggestion for a new book cover. Actually, not bad. Not sure how Red Death posed for cover art back then, though. 35 cents seems a bit on the low side. BTW, Red Death is herself a beautiful redhead. Which reminds me of a joke.

Redhead and her husband go to the doctor. After the husband is examined, the doctor tells him to step out of the office, then turns to the redhead wife: "Your husband is very ill. He could die. You must take very good care of him. Give him breakfast in bed, fix nutritious meals, and make him feel loved in every way you can think of." The instructions went on in that vein.

The redhead leaves the doctor's office and her husband asks, "What did the doctor say?"

"The doctor said you're going to die."

  1. That's what my wife keeps telling me.

  2. I always liked the joke about the dying man at home awakening to the smell of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies (his favorite) coming from the kitchen. With his last strength he pulls himself out of bed and crawls into the kitchen. Just as he reaches to grab a cookie, his wife slaps his hand and says, "Leave those alone! Those are for the funeral."

  3. Having read this post, I told the story of the doctor, the husband and the red head to my black haired, brown skinned Filipina wife. Laughing, she said she agreed with the red head, and were I the husband in the story, then I too would die. There appear to be commonalities between black haired Filipinas and red heads presumably of European descent. ;-)

    1. Don't know any Filipinas personally, although there were many in Bahrain for some reason. But I can see that.
