Where the world comes to study the Bible

Ephesians 5:25-29

Mr. Choate

Joseph H. Choate was a thorough gentleman as well as a distinguished lawyer in this country some years back. He had a quick wit which made him good copy for journalists. Someone once asked him, “Mr. Choate, if you were not yourself, who would you most like to be?”

Without a second’s hesitation Choate replied, “Mrs. Choate’s second husband.”

Mr. Thatcher

Denis Thatcher, the husband of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, is remembered for his good-humored answer to a question from a reporter probing for some sign of jealousy or discord owing to Mrs. Thatcher’s post. As the Thatchers were moving into the prime minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street in London, the reporter queried Mr. Thatcher, “Who wears the pants in this house?”

“I do,” he answered, “and I also wash and iron them.”
