A tall African man stood out in a Marketing class including 19 female students. A handsome man, with an air about him and plenty of fans among the women.

The discussion topic was the ethics of marketing to children. I asked if any students had children, to help the discussion.

Two women raised their hands, as did the solitary man.

“How many?” one disappointed fan asked him.

“Not sure.” he replied, adding, “over 100 I believe.”

“Gosh!... Your poor wife!!”

“Wives!.... 57 I think!”

Turns out he was a tribal chief. Nonetheless, he got an earful from the rioting feminists!

    Nicely written and a nice build-up to the ‘punch’ lines. I can so easily visualise it happening.
