When she hears a knock on the door.
Upon answering the door, she sees it is two of her husband’s friends and co-workers.
“Mary,” says the first co-worker, “I’m afraid we have some terrible news. You see, there was an accident at the factory today, and your husband fell into a vat of the Guinness.”
“My God!” Exclaims Mary, “will he be alright, how badly is he hurt!?”
“Well,” says the co-worker, “the fact is Mary, he didn’t make it, he drowned.”
“No!” Sobs Mary. “Please, tell me it was at least a quick death, and painless?”
“Well, you see, the thing of it is Mary, he got out three times to pee.”
