“Elmer Smudgegegunk was married to an old shrew, one of those women that’s always nagging and raising the devil around the house. At times, she even went so far as to throw pots and pans at Elmer’s bean. The poor guy stood it as long as he could, then decided to find a little consolation via the liquor store, so, for one whole week, he went on a binge. Every night, he’d return home as blind as a bat. He became a chronic lush and was plastered day and night, which worried his friends down at the grocery store, so they decided to do something to cure him. The plan was for one of them to dress up all in red like the devil, with horns on, and carry a pitchfork. The self-appointed benefactor hid in the cemetery, which he knew Elmer would have to pass on his way home. It was midnight when poor Elmer staggered by the cemetery. As he passed a tombstone, the devil jumped up from behind it. Elmer stopped, and gazed at him, as he swayed unsteadily on his feet.
“You’ll have to stop drinking!” warned the devil.
“Who are you?” asked Elmer, thick tounged.
“I’m the devil!”
“Oh, you’re the devil,” laughed Elmer boisterously. “I’m glad to meet you! I married a sister of yours!”
‘Senator’ Ed Ford, Can You Top This, 1945
