Tea Pun from 1918 (Showing Who is in Charge)

Recently, we  found this tea joke/pun/story in a newspaper from the early 1900s.  We thought it was enjoyable and true.

Meeks:  My wife prefers tea for breakfast, while I prefer coffee.

Bleeks: Then I suppose it is necessary to have both, eh?

Meeks: Oh no, we compromise.

Bleeks: In what way?

Meeks: We have tea.


Even back there, men knew who really were in charge.
