Husband: I'm hungry. what we got to eat?
WIfe: There's a pizza in the freezer. Go fix it
Husband: Alright

[ Husband walks over to the freezer and takes out the pizza.]

Husband: Bay, how long does it take for the oven to heat up?
Wife: I don't know about 7 minutes, I guess.

[Husband turns on the oven, places the pizza in it immediately, and sets the timer]

wife: What did you do? Just set the time for 7 minutes extra?
Husband: Yea

[After a few minutes the wife goes over to the oven. There are 7 minutes left on the timer. She opens up the oven door and a big puff of smoke comes out of the oven. she closes the door quickly. she walks back to the living room and sits with her husband on the couch. A few minutes pass when the husband speaks again.]

Husband: Wow it smells like the pizza is burning.
Wife: Yeah it does, and when I walked over there and opened the door a big puff of smoke came out.
Husband: What!

[He runs to the oven and opens the door. An even larger puff of smoke comes out of the oven]

Husband: What the hell?! Why didn't you take the pizza out when you saw all the smoke.
Wife: Well the timer still had 7 minutes left.

The End.
