Marriage 201, Lecture 430: Men's work

SH [as we are working in the yard]: Hey! There's a dead mouse!

Me: Wow. Laverne is good.

SH: Do you want it in the compost?

Me: No.

SH: What are you going to do with it?

Me: Me?

SH: Yes.

Me: Nothing.

SH: Well you can't leave it here.

Me: Put it in the trash.

SH: Why me?

Me: Because taking care of dead rodents is man's work.

What? You mean you didn't want it bronzed as a permanent memento of Laverne's resourcefulness?

Put its head on a little post as a warning to other trespassing rodents. That's what I do with yellow jackets and the like
