A man is drinking in a bar and gets terribly drunk.

He ends up throwing up all over his suit. He says to his friend. “My wife said if I ever come home drunk again, she will leave me”.

His friends says “Just put a twenty pound note in your top pocket and say someone else threw up and that they gave you the money for the dry cleaning bill”.

When he got home his wife hit the roof when she saw his suit. He said “No, It was somebody else and he gave me twenty pounds for the laundry bill”. 

She said “But why have you got two twenty pound notes in your hand?”

“Oh”, he said “the other one is from the man who shat in my pants”.
