“My wife just called me, ‘Three of the girls in the office have just received some flowers‘“ (joke)

A Valentine’s Day joke was posted on Twitter by Marc Gatland on February 14, 2012”

Wife: “3 girls at work have received flowers today, they’re absolutely gorgeous.”
Me: “That’s probably why they’ve received flowers then.”


“Mrs called.said three of her mates have received flowers, they are gorgeous...I said ‘thats probably why they got flowers then’” was posted on Twitter by Sean Balmford on February 14, 2012. “Wife called from work & said, ‘3 girls got flowers for V-Day. They’re absolutely gorgeous.’ I said, ‘Probably why they got flowers then’” was posted on Twitter by Tricks And Hacks, also on February 14, 2012.

The popular Valentine’s Day joke is that the wife thinks the flowers were gorgeous, but the husband thinks the girls at the office were gorgeous.

THERE’S always one misogynist, even on Valentine’s Day. Said the chap in the pub catching a pint on the way home: “The wife just called to say that three of the girls in the office have just received bouquets of flowers for Valentine’s Day and that they were absolutely gorgeous.

“I told her, ‘That’s probably why they got the flowers then’.”
