One night Jerry brought home a dozen red roses to his wife.
"How lovely, dear," she said, "What's the occasion?"
"I want to make love to you" he said simply.
"Not tonight, dear. I have a headache."
The next night, Jerry came home with a big box of chocolates and explained that he wanted to make love with her.
"I'm awfully tired, honey" said his wife. "Not tonight."
Every night for a week Jerry brought home something, but each time his wife's answer was no. Finally he came home with six black kittens with little red bows around their necks and handed them to his wife.
"How adorable, Jerry," she exclaimed. "But what are they for?"
"These are six little pallbearers for your dead pussy."
