The Question

A man and his wife were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The wife says to her husband, "For our anniversary this year, you can ask me one question, any question you want to and I will answer it truthfully."

The husband replies, "Okay, this has been bothering me for a long time, but I haven't had the courage to ask you before... I have noticed that all of our eight children look similar to one another except for Billy. I can't figure out how he got to look so different. Did he have a different father than the rest?"

The wife appears stunned and is unable to look her husband in the eyes. Slowly she replies, "Yes, he did have a different father."

Her husband was taken aback. "Oh, my! Okay... I must know. Please tell me. Who is Billy's father?"

Again she cannot look her husband in the eyes. She is very distressed and after a long silence she slowly said, "You."
