Three men were discussing their new wives and their house cleaning duties. The first man married a woman from Pennsylvania. He bragged that he had told his wife to do all the dishes and clean the house. He said that it took her a couple of days, but on the third day he came home to a clean house, and the dishes were all washed and put away.

The second man had married a woman from Maryland. He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, the dishes, and the cooking. He told the men that the first day, he didn't see any results, but by the next day, it was better, and on the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a West Virginia girl. He boasted that he told her his house was to be cleaned, dishes washed, the cooking done, and the laundry folded. And this was all her responsibility. He said the first day, he didn't see anything and the second day, he didn't see anything, but by the third day some of the swelling had gone down so he could see a little out of his left eye.
