|A wealthy man was having
an affair with an Italian woman for several
years. One night, during one of their rendezvous, she confided in him
that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his
marriage, he would pay her a large sum of money if she would go to
Italy to secretly have the child. If she stayed in Italy to raise the
he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.
She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born.
To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and
write "Spaghetti" on the back. He would then arrange for child support
payments to begin.
One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife.
His wife said, "Honey, you received a very strange post card today."
"Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it," he said. The wife handed
him the card and watched as her husband read the card, turned
pale and collapsed.
On the card was written: "Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with
meatballs, one without!
