A doctor was having an affair with his nurse. Four months into the affair, Janet, told the doctor that she was pregnant. Not wanting his wife to find out, he gave Janet a sum of money and told her to go to Italy and have the baby there.
"But how will I let you know when the baby is born?" she asked.
'Just send me a postcard and write 'spaghetti' on the back. I'll take care of the expenses." Not knowing what else to do Janet took the money and flew to Italy.
Seven months went by and then one day the doctor's wife called him at the office and said, "Dear, you have received a very strange postcard in the mail today from Europe, and I don't understand what it means." The doctor said, "Just wait until I get home and I will explain it to you."
Later that evening, the doctor came home, read the postcard, fell to the floor with a heart attack. Paramedics rushed him to the ER. The lead medic stayed back to comfort the wife.
The lead medic asked what trauma had precipitated the cardiac arrest. So the wife picked up the card and read, SPAGHETTI, SPAGHETTI, SPAGHETTI, SPAGHETTI-TWO WITH SAUSAGE AND MEATBALLS, TWO WITHOUT."
