Betty Sue

Joke:

What is a joke?

A man is reading his newspaper when his wife walks up behind him and smacks him on the back of the head with a frying pan.
He asks, "What was that for?"
She says, "I found a piece of paper in your pocket with 'Betty Sue' written on it."
He says, "Don't worry honey, remember last week when I went to the horse track? 'Betty Sue' was the name of the horse I went there to bet on." She apologises and walks away. Three days later he's reading his newspaper when she walks up behind him and smacks him on the back of the head again with the frying pan.
He asks, "What was that for?"
She answers, "Your horse called."


Explanation:

To smack means to hit hard, usually with your hand, but here, with a frying pan.

A frying pan is the thing you use to cook with oil.

We often call our girlfriends or wives 'honey'.

A horse track is where horses race.

To bet is to use your money to try and get more money in a race or other sporting event.
