From Jeff in Texas (Actually, in my office 🙂 )

After a wonderful and happy life together, a couple who had been married for 50 years had a terrible car wreck that resulted in them both going to the Pearly Gates of Heaven.

As Saint Peter was giving them the tour, the man noticed that there were two lines for “husband processing”.  The first line was filled with thousands of men.  The sign that hung above that line said, “Hen-pecked Husbands – This Line”.  As he surveyed the situation, he noticed that every man he saw was in the “Hen-pecked Husbands” line except one.

Far off in the distance he saw one man standing off on his own.  The man was not an overly impressive man.  As a matter of fact, he stood with his shoulders slumped over and he stared at the ground.  Above that man hung a sign that said, “Non- Hen-pecked Husbands – This Line”.

Curiosity got the best of the new visitor – and he had to walk over to meet the only man standing in the “Non-Hen-pecked Husbands” line.

“May I ask you a question?” said the man.

Without even looking up, the demure man answered quietly, “Yes.”

“I don’t mean to sound rude,” said the newcomer, “but it seems that every man in heaven is over in the “Hen-pecked Husbands” line except you.”

He continued, “At the risk of being indelicate, you don’t seem that tough.  Why are you the only man in this ‘Non-Hen-pecked  Husbands’ line?”

The man softly replied, “Because this is where my wife told me to stand.”[lightbox link=”” thumb=”” width=”300″ align=”right” title=”hen” frame=”true” icon=”image” caption=””]
