At Frederick’s of Hollywood a husband wants to buy his wife the sheerest lingerie he can find.
“This is $200,” says the saleswoman, showing him an item.
“I want one that’s more sheer,” he says.
“This one is $350.” “Sheerer than that.”
“This is the sheerest we have. It’s $500.” “I’ll take it!” he replies.
The man goes home to his wife and shows it to her, saying, “Go put this on and come down to model it for me.”
She goes upstairs, opens the box and thinks, “This thing is so see-through that the old coot won’t even notice if I’m wearing it or not. I can take it back for a refund and he won’t know the difference.”
So she comes out wearing nothing at all and strikes a pose at the top of the stairs.
“So, how do you like it?” she asks. He looks at her a moment and says, “Well, you’d think for $500 they’d iron the thing.”
