  • Marriage is like a locked-room mystery. (Hold the "like.")

    Marriage is a locked room mystery.

    If they got in, how did they get out?

    If they were out, how did they get in?

    If they stayed in, how do we find the answers to them and their marriage?

    If they are still there, how is it they won't give us the answers to their mystery marriage?

    Do they have the answers?

    We can't see them.

    Are they in there?



    Hey, guys, are you in there?

    (Slip some grub under the door. Maybe they need some mouse cheese.
    (Yoodle hoodle...hey, you married couple...can we ooze some June brie under the doorway, for you?)

    (What have they been doing in there for 27 years?
    (Don't answer.)
