Leroy And Tyrone Discussing Marital Problems
When Leroy’s doorbell rang he answered the door and was handed a paper. The delivery boy said it was a subpoena. Leroy showed it to Tyrone and asked him if he knew what it was.
Tyrone in his pompous lack of knowledge said, “This here is a sub-peena”.
“I know that.... but what’s a sub-peena for” Leroy asked?
“Well….” said Tyrone, turning it over in hs hands and studying it. “That’s law talk. Your wife is suing you for a deevorce. We know that ‘sub’ means ‘under’ and ‘peena’ is Latin for ‘penis’, so – ‘sub-peena’ means under the penis”.
“And what’s that mean”?
“Man, it means she’s really got you by the short and curlies”.
