A young couple got married and went on their honeymoon. When they got back, the bride immediately called her mother.
“Well…” said her mother, “How was the honeymoon?”
“Oh, mamma!” she replied, “The honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic…”
Suddenly she burst out in tears. “But mamma, as soon as we returned, Tom started using the most horrible language – things I’d never heard before! I mean, all these awful four letter words! You’ve got to take me home… PLEASE MAMMA!”
“Sarah, Sarah…” her mother said, “Calm down! You need to stay with your husband and work this out. Now tell me, what could be so awful? What four letter words did he say?”
“Please don’t make me tell you, Mamma!” wept the daughter, “I’m so embarrassed they’re just too awful! COME GET ME, PLEASE!”
“Darling, baby, you have to tell your mother these horrible four letter words.”
Still sobbing, the bride said, “Oh, Mamma … he used words like: dust, wash, iron, cook…”
“I’ll pick you up in twenty minutes.” said the mother.
