    A couple was celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary. Their domestic tranquility had long been the talk of the town, "What a peaceful and loving couple."

    A local reporter was inquiring as to the secret of their long and happy marriage.

    "Well, it dates back to our honeymoon," explained the woman. "We visited the Grand Canyon and took a trip down to the bottom of the canyon by pack mule. We hadn't gone too far when my husband's mule stumbled. My husband quietly said, 'That's once.' We proceeded a little further and the mule stumbled again. Once more my husband quietly said, 'That's twice.' we hadn't gone a half-mile when the mule stumbled the third time. My husband quietly removed a revolver from his holster and shot the mule dead."

    "I started an angry protest over his treatment of the mule, when he looked at me and quietly said, 'That's once."

    "And we lived happily ever after."
