The ClintonsWhen Bill and Hillary first got married Bill said, "I am putting a box
under the bed. You must promise never to look in it." In all their 30
years of marriage Hillary never looked.
However on the afternoon of their 30th anniversary, curiosity got the
best of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside. In the box were 3
empty beer cans and $1874.25 in cash. She closed the box and put it
back under the bed.
Now that she knew what was in the box she was doubly curious as to why.
That evening they were out for a special dinner. After dinner, Hillary
could no longer contain her curiosity, and she confessed, saying, "I am
so sorry. For all these years I kept my promise and never looked into
the box under our bed, but today the temptation was too much and I gave
in. Now I need to know why you keep the cans in the box?"
Bill thought for a while and said, "I guess after all these years you
deserve to know the truth. Whenever I was unfaithful to you, I put an
empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it
Hillary was shocked, but said, "I am very disappointed and saddened,
but I guess after all those years away from home on the road,
temptation does happen, and three times is not bad considering the
years." They hugged and made their peace.
A little while later Hillary asked Bill, "So why do you have all the
money in the box?"
Bill answered, "Well whenever the box filled up with empty cans, I took
them to the recycling center and redeemed them for cash.
