A man returning home a day early from a business trip got into a taxi at the airport. It was after midnight. While en route to his home, he asked the cabby if he would be a witness. The man suspected his wife was having an affair and he intended to catch her in the act. For US$100, the cabby agreed.

Arriving at the house, the husband and cabby tiptoed into the bedroom. The husband switched on the lights, yanked the blanket back and there was his wife in bed with another man. The husband put a gun to the man's head.

The wife shouted, "Don't do it! This man has been very generous! I lied when I told you I inherited money. He paid for the Ford Pick-Up I bought for you. He paid for the Road King. He paid for our house at the lake. He paid for our country club membership, and even pays the monthly dues."

Shaking his head from side to side, the husband slowly lowered his gun. He looked over at the cabby and said, "What would you do?''

The cabby answered, "I'd cover his butt up with the blanket before he catches cold.''
