“I told my wife a man is like good wine; he gets better with age. So she locked me in the cellar”

American stand-up comedian Rodney Dangerfield (1921-2004) told a now classic joke about husbands and wives.
     
“I told my wife a man is like good wine; he gets better with age. So she locked me in the cellar” was printed in the New York (NY) Times on May 12, 1982. “I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine, he gets better with age… The next day, she locked me in the cellar” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on July 16, 2016.

Rodney Dangerfield (born Jacob Rodney Cohen; November 22, 1921 – October 5, 2004) was an American stand-up comedian, actor, screenwriter, and producer. He was known for his self-deprecating one-liner humor, his catchphrase “I don’t get no respect!” and his monologues on that theme.

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine: we just get better with age.
The next day she locked me in the cellar.
