The crowd was shocked...
He followed up by saying, "That woman was my mother"
The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which was well received.
About a week later, one of the top managers of an organization who had attended the speech decided to use that joke at his house. He tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It was a bit foggy to him.
He said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who was not my wife"
Naturally, his wife was shell shocked, murmuring.
After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the manager finally blurted out "... and I can't remember who she was"
As expected, he got the thrashing of his life time...
Moral of the story:
