Mr. and Mrs. Williams got married when he was twenty-three, and she was twenty. Twenty-five years later, they had a big party, and a photographer came and took some photographs of them.
Then the photographer gave Mrs. Williams a card and said, "They'll be ready next Wednesday. You can get them from studio."
"No," Mrs. Williams said, "please send them to us.
The photographs arrived a week later, but Mrs. Williams was not happy when she saw them. She got into her car and drove to the photographer's studio. She went inside and said angrily, "You took some photographs of me and my husband last week, but I' m not going to pay for them."
"Oh, why not?" the photographer asked.
"Because my husband looks like a monkey," Mrs. Williams said.
"Well," the photographer answered, "that isn't our fault. Why didn’t you think of that before you married him?"(148 words)
