A policeman spotted a man staggering down the street around 3am, unsteady on his feet, wearing just one shoe, and very obviously drunk.
"Good evening sir, would you mind stepping over here for a moment, please?" the policeman asked.
Haltingly, the man came over to the policer officer. "Gooodsh evening occifer, whass the trouble?"
"Well," the officer began, "it seems you're not quite in any condition to be walking along in this area this late at night. Are you heading anywhere in particular?"
"Why yesshh," the man replied, "I'm on my way to attend a lecshture in a few minutes about the evilsh of drinking, gambling, drinking and gambling, and staying up all hoursh of the night."
Intrigued, the police officer asked, "You mean you're heading to attend that lecture right now?"
The man nodded.
"And it's being given at this late hour, and you're going in that condition?"
The man nodded again.
Disbelieving now, the policeman asked, "Who is going to be awake at this late hour and willing to give you such a lecture after seeing you in that condition?"
The man replied, "My wife."
