A Race Horse?

A man was sitting reading his newspaper when his wife snuck up and whacked him real hard on the head with a frying pan.

"What was that for?" he asked.

"That was for the piece of paper in your trousers pocket with the name Mary Ellen written on it" she replied.

"Don't be silly," he said, "Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Mary Ellen was the name of one of the horses I bet on."

She seemed satisfied at this and apologized.

Three days later, he was again sitting in his chair reading when she nailed him with an even bigger frying pan, instantly knocking him out cold.

When he came around, he asked, "What was that for?"

"Your horse phoned!"
