A lawyer was in the shower when the phone rang.
His wife answered it and was told that her husband's client, Danny Wright, had been granted a stay of execution, he would not be hanged tonight.
So she went upstairs to tell her husband the good news.
As she opened the bathroom door, she saw her husband bend over naked, drying his legs and feet.
"Honey, they're not hanging Wright tonight!" she said.
And he yelled, "For God's sake, can't you give me a break!!?"
Moral of the story:
Your tongue is meaner than execution.
