A Quick Joke

Okay, this was one of my father’s favorites, but it’s all in the delivery.

Abraham Lincoln is writing the Gettysburg address. He thinks it out, sits down, puts pen to paper, and writes it. However, he needs to read it out loud first, since it’s a speech, to see how it sounds. So he reads it in front of his wife.

Mary Todd Lincoln says, “It’s great, Abraham, but why don’t you just say ‘eighty years’ instead of ‘four-score’?”

And Abraham Lincoln says: “Why don’t *YOU*…shut the FUCK UP!”
