Bawdy Jokes
Lady gardener just can't get her tomatoes to ripen a nice red color. One day she notices her neighbor's tomatoes and they're a beautiful shade of red. Curious, she asks how he does it. He replies, "Sounds odd, I know, but everyday, twice a day, I put on a raincoat and go out to the garden and flash them. They blush and turn a beautiful shade of red. You should try it." She decides to do so. A month later, she meets the neighbor and he asks if her tomatoes are now a nice red color. She replies, "No. But my cucumbers are enormous!"
