> "I've just gotta win tomorrow. I wish I knew what the answers are. You know
>I'm not going to sleep at all tonight. I will probably look like garbage
> Relax, honey," her husband, Roger, reassured her, "It will all be OK."
> Ten minutes after they arrived home, Roger grabbed the car keys and started
> heading out the door. "Where are you going?" Jane asked.
> "I have a little errand to run. I should be back soon." He replied.
> Jane waited impatiently for Roger's return. After an agonizing 3 hour
>absence, Roger returned, sporting a very wide and wicked grin. "Honey, I
>managed to get tomorrow's question and answer!"
> "What is it?" she cried excitedly.
> "OK. The question is 'What are the three main parts of the male anatomy?'
> And the answer is 'The head, the heart, and the penis.' " Shortly after
>that, the couple went to sleep with Jane, now feeling confident and at ease,
>plummeting into a deep and restful slumber.
> At 3:30 in the morning, however, Jane was shaken awake by Roger, who was

> So it was that Jane was once again on the set of the quiz show. Even though
> she knew the question and answer, she could feel the butterflies conquering
> her stomach and nervousness running through her veins.
> The cameras began running and the host, after reminding the audience of the
> previous days events, faced Jane and asked the big question. "Jane, for
>$65,000, what are the main parts of the male anatomy? You have 10 seconds."
> "Hmm, uhm, the head?" she said nervously.
> "Very good. Six seconds."
> "Eh, uh, the heart?"
> "Very good! Four seconds."
> "I, uhh, ooooooohh, darn! My husband drilled it into me last night and I had
>it on the tip of my tongue this morning..."
> "That's close enough," Said the game show host," CONGRATULATIONS!!"
