A psychiatrist told a client who was a henpecked husband to assert himself.

'Go home now, today, and show her you're the boss', he said.

The guy went straight home, slammed the front door, shook his fist in his wife's face and growled:

'Right, woman! Things are going to be much different around here. Yes, from now on you're taking orders from me. D'you hear me? Get the idea?'


I need my supper, right this second. And furthermore, when it's on the table, go and fetch my fresh-washed, smart shirt, formal cashmere slacks, watch, and shades.

Later, I am going off to the Horse and Hounds with some good friends.

YOU are going to stay at home here where you belong. Oh, and you know who's going to tie my bow tie for me.'

'I do,' said his wife, 'the undertaker.'

ISMs (an "oldie", but a "goldie")

Socialism: You have two cows. You keep one cow, and give the other one to your neighbor.

Communism: You have two cows. You give both cows to the government, and they may give you a little taste of the milk.

Fascism: You have two cows. You give all of the milk to the government, and the government sells it.

Nazism: You have two cows. The government shoots you and keeps both cows.


Anarchism: You have two cows. You keep both of the cows, shoot a government agent, steal another cow, hide out incognito, become a fugitive on the evening news on TV.

Capitalism: You have two cows. You get a good bull, twelve mild cows, divvy some hay, moonlight in the whey business.

Surrealism: You have two motley old komodos. The government takes them from you, yet you (the victim) get kazoo lessons.
