    An attorney got home late one evening after a very taxing day trying to get
    >a stay of execution for a client, named Wilbur Wright, who was due to be
    >hanged for murder at midnight. His last minute plea for clemency to the
    >governor had failed and he was feeling tired and depressed.
    >
    >As soon as he got through the door, his wife began with, "What time of the
    >night do you call this? Where have you been?" and on and on.
    >
    >Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he went and
    >poured himself a very large whisky and headed off for a long, hot soak in
    >the bathtub .. pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks from his wife.
    >
    >While he was in the bath, the phone rang and his wife answered. She was
    >told that her husband's client had been granted his stay of execution.
    >
    >Finally, realizing what a day he must have had, she relented a little and
    >went upstairs to give him the good news.
    >
    >As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her
    >husband's rear view as he bent over naked drying his legs and feet.
    >
    >"They're not hanging Wright tonight," she said.
    >
    >The attorney whirled around and screamed hysterically, "For crying out loud
    >woman, don't you ever stop?"
