In case you haven't had enough, how about some "He said--I said":

He said to me....I don't know why you wear a bra; you've got nothing to put in it.
I said to him....You wear pants don't you?
He said to me....Shall we try swapping positions tonight?
I said to him....That's a good idea - you stand by the stove & sink while I sit on the sofa and do nothing but fart.

He said to me....What have you been doing with all the grocery money I gave you?
I said to him....
Turn sideways & look in the mirror.

He said to me....How many men does it take to change a roll of toilet paper?
I said to him....I don't know; it has never happened.

He said to me....Why is it difficult for women to find men who are sensitive, caring and good- looking?
I said to him....They already have boyfriends.

He said to me....What do you call a woman who knows where her husband is every night?
I said to him....A widow.

He said to me....Why are married women heavier than single women?
I said to him....Single women come home, see what's in the fridge and go to bed.  Married women come home, see what's in bed and go to the fridge.
