Texas Oil Man
"Harlen, I want you to buy me a divorce," the big Texan boomed to his attorney. "That wife of mine ain't behavin' right. She's MY woman and she's supposed to do what I say."
"Well, R.J., a wife isn't exactly property, you know," the lawyer said. "You don't own her the way you own an oil well."
"Maybe not," R.J. conceded, "but I damn well oughta have exclusive drilling rights."
