The Accountant’s Wife

Flash in the Pan| Views: 642

An accountant comes home to a wife with three heads. One is usually happy to see him, and the middle head is indifferent, but he’s careful to give the last a wide berth. They dubbed that head El Diablo. It likes to spit on the accountant, recite dialogue from bad pornography, or heckle plays with children.

That night, the first head gives him a kiss. We’re pregnant, dear, she says.

The second head sighs.

El Diablo cackles gleefully.
