It’s easy to get nervous and misspeak when you’re holding a speech in front of lots of people. Some people use a bit of alcohol to calm their nerves, but be careful not too drink too much – you might end up like the man in this story.
A crowd of managers was being entertained by a popular motivational speaker.
The speaker said, “The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn’t my wife!”
The audience was shocked and just sat there in total silence.
The speaker added, “And that woman was my mother!”
The crowd laughed loudly and applauded.
A week later, a top manager trained by the motivational speaker tried to crack this very effective joke at home during a small party.
The party had been going on all evening, and he was a bit tipsy after having had a few drinks.
The man tapped his spoon against a glass to get the party’s attention. As the crowd went silent, he stood up on a chair so he could be heard clearly.
He said loudly, “The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn’t my wife!”
The wife went red with shock and rage.
Standing there for 20 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, with the guests not saying a word, the man finally blurted out, “… and I can’t remember who she was!”
SHARE if you laughed!
