A not very bright young woman got married on Ash Wednesday. On the first night of the honeymoon, she slipped into the hotel room bathroom – before joining her new husband.
With great anticipation, she then went back into the room, crawled into bed, only to find that her new Catholic husband had settled down on the sofa.
When she asked him why he was apparently not going to come into bed with her, he replied, “Because it’s Lent.”
Almost in tears, she remarked, “Well, that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard! Who did you lend it to and for how long?”
