It's an old, old joke, merely presented in a new wrapping. I always liked this joke.

My wife now groans every time we drive past a cemetery, without me even having to say anything any more.

2015-07-29 Rerun commentary: Wow, it's 9 years later, and she still does that.

Even though I've expanded my cemetery joke repertoire by pointing out that we're driving past the dead centre of town.
