While lying in bed at night, let a lull of silence slip into the conversation. After a sufficient amount of time has passed, sigh and say, “Honey? Can I ask you a question?”

When he’s answered, dubiously, cautiously, “Sure…” and you know he’s waiting for you to bring up Something-Dire-And-Probably-Involving-Something-He-Did-Wrong, pause for a moment to heighten the tension. Then, open your mouth and very seriously say:

“Why did the chicken cross the road?”

(Be forewarned that you might end up getting tickled half to death or smacked with a pillow a few times for that one, but if you think the hilarity is worth the tickling, go for it!)
