Mr. & Mrs. Smith had been back from their honeymoon for two weeks when Mr. Smith came home from work and said to his blonde wife that he had invited 4 of his friends from the office home for dinner on Friday night.

Mrs. Smith was a bit apprehensive and asked if she must cook a meal for the four. Mr. Smith explained that there would be eight coming because each would bring his wife or a date. Since this was there first party, he consoled her by saying that all she has to do was get some Chinese food in and perhaps she could bake a cake. This sounded like a good idea, and they sat down and decided what Chinese food to get.

Friday morning his wife called the office in tears. She explained that the only cake recipe she had would only feed six.

Her hubby said, "Why don't you just double the recipe?"

She decided that was a good idea.

At four, hubby got another phone call -- this time quite frantic.

"I just can't do it," the wife weeped. "It's impossible."

"Now, now, what's the matter?"

"Well, the recipe calls for two eggs..."

"So, you use FOUR eggs. Don't you have them?

"Yes -- Then it needs 4 cups of flour."

"Well," hubby said rather testily, "you will have to use 8 cups of flour -- what is the problem?"

"It isn't the ingredients," sobbed his wife, "it says that the cake must be baked at 350 degrees and I have checked the oven and I can't turn the heat up to 700 degrees!"
