The Plea for a really bad husband

The Governor made room on his busy calendar to hear the pleas of one Mrs. Smith that her husband be released from the state penitentiary. What was he sentenced for? asked the Governor gently.

For stealing a loaf of bread, nervously replied the offenders wife.

Is he a good husband?

No, she replied frankly, blushing a bit. He beats me when he gets drunk, he bullies our children, hes unfaithful, and really not much good at all.

It sounds to me as though youre better off without him, said the Governor. Why on earth do you want him out of jail?

Well, she explained, were out of bread again.
