Colleague

Did you hear about the scientist who was lab partners with a pot of boiling water?
He had a very esteemed colleague.
What did the pun say to his annoying colleague?
You're being pun-reasonable right now!
Why did the electrician marry his colleague? He couldn’t resistor.
Man wakes up and says nothing. Wife annoyed shouts, “You’ve forgotten what day it is haven’t you.”
Man goes to work and confides to a colleague, “I think I forgot my wife’s birthday.”
“Not a problem,” he replies. Just go out and buy her a beautiful new dress and a pearl necklace.”
After work the man races home and showers his wife with gifts.
“Oh darling,” she replies, “ what a beautiful new outfit to pick my mother up from the airport in.”
