“My wife left a note on the fridge that said ‘This isn’t working‘“ (joke)

A popular joke about a refrigerator is:

“My wife left a note on the fridge that said ‘This isn’t working I’m going to my mom’s.’ I opened up the fridge. The light was on and the beer was cold. I’m not sure what she was talking about.”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2012.

Not working?

My wife left a note on the fridge.

“It’s not working, I can’t take it anymore! Gone to stay at my parents.”

I opened the fridge, the light came on and the beer was cold.

Not sure what she was talking about!
