The wedding date was set and the groom's three pals—a carpenter, an electrician, and a dentist—were deciding what pranks to play on the couple on their wedding night. The carpenter figured sawing the slats of their bed would give them a chuckle or two. The electrician decided to wire the bed (with alternating current, of course). The dentist wouldn't commit himself, but wore a sly grin and promised it would be memorable. The two wed and a few days later, each of the groom's buddies received the following note:
We didn't mind the bed slats being sawed. The electric shock was only a minor setback. But I swear by God Almighty, I'm going to kill whoever put novocaine in the K-Y Jelly!"
