“My wife’s a peach—she has a heart of stone”

To say that a person is a “peach” means that this person is admirable or pleasing. “Joe: My math teacher is a peach!  Sam: You mean she is pretty?  Joe: No, she has a heart of stone!” was posted on Twitter on December 13, 2010.

A popular form of the joke was posted on India Forums on February 16, 2011:

Santa: My wife is a peach.
Banta: Why? Because she is so soft and juicy?
Santa: No, because she has a heart of stone.
