Some jokes are good, others crude. Some are clean, but some will breed out blood & steam. If you’re a gentleman, you’ll prefer those with class & refinement. This then will turn out to be yet the best!
The subtlety of regret & the equally profound spontaneous response, by way of written notes over the worthiness of the sexual venture, elucidate the class, refinement & ethics of it all.
A businessman meets a beautiful girl and agrees to spend the night with her for $500. So they do. Before he leaves, he tells her that he does not have any cash with him, but he will have his secretary write a check and mail it to her, calling the payment ‘RENT FOR APARTMENT.
On the way to the office he regrets what he has done, realizing that the whole event was not worth the price. So he has his secretary send a check for $250 and enclosed the following typed note:
1) it had never been occupied
2) that there was plenty of heat
3) that it was small enough to make me feel cozy and at home.
However, I found out that it had been previously occupied,that there wasn’t any heat, and that it was entirely too large. “
Upon receipt of the note, the girl immediately returned the check for $250 with the following note:
“First of all, I cannot understand how you expect a beautiful apartment to remain unoccupied indefinitely. As for the heat, there is plenty of it, if you know how to turn it on. Regarding the space, the apartment is indeed of regular size, but if you don’t have enough furniture to fill it, please don’t blame the landlady. Send the rent in full or we will be forced to contact your present landlady.”
Equally responsive rising to the challenge! She really knows how to paint with words, like an artist with the brush on canvas.
