A married couple on a tight budget were shopping in a supermarket. The husband picks up a case of beer and places it in their shopping cart.
The wife complained: “Put that back, we only have enough funds for essential items – not luxuries such as beer costing $20.”
A little later while walking through the cosmetics aisle, the wife picks up a beauty cream and places it in the cart.
The husband says: “I thought we were on a tight budget, buying only essential items, right?”
The wife responds: “This item is essential. It makes me look beautiful!”
“Well,”- says the husband, “the beer also makes you look beautiful and its half the price of the cream.”
