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.
