LOL! This is so very true in almost every aspect of life.
Just imagine if anyone would get married if they really knew :)

John, who lived in the north of England, decided to go golfing in Scotland with his buddy, Shawn.
So they loaded up John's minivan and headed north.
After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

‘I realise it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed,' she explained, 'and I'm afraid the neighbours will talk if I let you stay in my house.'

'Don't worry,' John said. 'We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light.'

The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night.
Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way.
They enjoyed a great weekend of golf.
But about nine months later, John got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few
minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on
the golf weekend.

He dropped in on his friend Shawn and asked, "Shawn, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our golf holiday in Scotland about 9 months ago?'
‘Yes, I do,' said Shawn
'Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?'
'Well, um, yes!,' Shawn said, a little embarrassed about being found out, 'I have to admit that I did.'
'And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?'
Shawn's face turned beet red and he said, 'Yeah, look, I'm sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did. Why do you ask?'
‘She just died and left me everything.

Stealing one here.....which is the very essence of telling a joke, I suppose:

I'm not sure which shocked my mailman more, the fact that I came to the door completely naked or the fact that I knew where he lived.

Kindly send all complaints to a fellow that goes by the name of Sean Ray.

The real essence of joke telling is in the delivery...that's why the mail service is a joke and failing

Pardon my misuse of words, a common failing for me since English is my first language.....not that it matters but the intended was that the essence of being a comedian is stealing jokes mostly with added personal touches.....which leads into the age old question of which came first: the last original joke or the pyramids? (some of those Egyptian hieroglyphics are regular riots)

As far as poor Sean's joke delivery goes, I assure you it was typed with a zest and panache that would have made Liberace blush.

Which reminds me of a joke...

A bunch of guys from the Laughter thread on SI got together each weekend to tell a whole bunch of their favorite jokes. They got to know the jokes so well that they gave them all numbers.

Savant called out 39, and everyone laughed hysterically.

Tom Clarke said 47 and everyone was doubled over.

OldAimGuy said 29 and everyone did a spit take.

Sedohr Nod watched incredulously as one by one, Stephen O, Sun Tzu, TimF, Thomas M, Celtictrader and so forth all called out their favorite numbers to the point everyone was laughing so hard they could barely breathe.

Wanting in on the fun, but not being a regular, Sedohr Nod figured, what the heck, and yelled out 19.

Crickets.

After an uncomfortable silence, Sedohr Nod asked: "Did I pick the one joke everyone didn't think was that funny?"

Savant replied: "Well, it wasn't the joke per se, it was your delivery."

- Jeff
