An older couple living in a small rural village took on an 18-year-old girl as a lodger. They lived in a very small house, and there was no indoor plumbing. The girl asked if she could have a bath, and the woman of the house explained that she and her husband took baths in a tin bathtub in front of the living room fireplace.

“Monday would be the best night, when my husband goes out to his darts,” the woman said. So the young girl agreed to have a bath the following Monday night.

After her husband had gone off for his darts match, the woman filled the bath and watched as the girl got undressed. She was surprised to see that the young thing didn’t have any pubic hair. She told her husband when he came home, but he didn’t believe her.

The woman said, “Next week, when you go off to bowl, I’ll leave a little gap in the curtains so that you can see for yourself, alright?”

The following Monday night, while the girl got undressed for her bath, the wife asked her, “Do you shave down there?”

“No,” replied the girl, “I’ve just never grown any hair down there. Do you have hair on yours?” “Oh, yes,” said the woman, and she showed the girl her hairy muff.

After the girl had gone to bed, the husband came home and the wife asked, “Well, did you see it?” “Yes,” he said, “but why the hell did you have to show her yours?”

“Why not?” she replied, “You’ve seen it before.” “I know,” he said, “but the rest of the darts team hadn’t!”
