CLUELESS MAN WHO ASKED OVERWORKED WIFE
WHY SHE DOESN’T HAVE ANY HOBBIES
IS MISSING, PRESUMED DEAD
Margaret Edith Potterdam was visibly shocked and put off when her clueless husband asked her why she didn’t have any hobbies or pastimes.
“It’s like you got no interest or nothin’” said her wildly unobservant husband Tad Potterdam as he downed another Light Beer and helped himself to another handful of pizza rolls his wife had made.
Residents in the vicinity of the Potterdam household reported hearing an ear-piercing scream of frustration coming from the Potterdam house.
“What’s the big deal? I just asked a simple question,” the idiotic man said as he scratched the top of his empty head.
“Gosh I don’t know,” Margaret mused as she made dinner, cleaned the kitchen, packed lunches, wrote a grocery list, laid out the kids’ clothes for tomorrow, and planned their upcoming weekend activities. “When I finally finish putting the kids to bed, checking my email, folding the laundry, working out, taking a shower, paying my bills, and getting into bed at 11:30 each night, I often think of that profound 1981 Styx lyric: `Too much time on my hands.’ It’s like they were talking directly to me!”
Business associates of Mr. Potterdam reported him missing the following day when he didn’t show up for work and friends contacted by police said he hasn’t been seen since.
“Oh, he’s dead,” said investigating Officer Sarah Lisle. “I guarantee it. If she didn’t kill him, I would’ve.”
STORY UPDATE: The body of Tad Potterdam was found late last night stuffed into one of the family trash cans where he was supposed to take out the garbage. Police believe he died of natural causes. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that you get off your ass and help with the dishes.
