    An attorney arrived home late one evening after a very taxing
    day trying to get a stay of execution for a client named William Wright
    who was due to be hanged for murder at midnight. His last minute plea for
    clemency to the state governor had failed and he was feeling tired
    and depressed.

    As soon as he got through the door his wife started on about, "What time
    of night do you call this? Where the hell have you been?" and so on.

    Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he went
    and poured himself a very large whisky and headed off to the bathroom
    for a long hot soak -- pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks.

    While he was in the bath the phone rang, which the wife answered to be
    told that her husband's client had been granted his stay of execution
    after all.

    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 end as he bent naked
    over the bath cleaning the tub.

    "They're not hanging Wright tonight," she said, at which the attorney
    whirled round and screamed hysterically, "For crying out loud woman,
    don't you ever stop?"
