Two guys walk into a bar... First guy asks how friend ditched the old ball & chain; the other reveals he's made an automaton of himself so the old lady thinks he's home. From this, two opposing stories follow, both in a more traditional mode: One: (view spoiler) That's cute. Two: (view spoiler) That's a more traditional take.
