    A married couple was in a terrible accident where the man's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from his body because he was too skinny.

    So, the wife offered to donate some of her own skin. However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from her buttocks.

    The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and they requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

    After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the man's new face. He looked more handsome than he ever had before! All his friends and relatives just went on and on about his youthful beauty!

    One day, he was alone with his wife, and he was overcome with emotion at her sacrifice. He said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you?"

    "My darling," she replied, "I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."

    I don't dare send this to my wife for fear she'll burn my face just on the off chance she could do the same...

    Pretty good...!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ummm...... not quite

    Okay, so the GUY's face is burned. He needs a skin graft. They can't use any skin from his body--he's too skinny. His wife will have to donate skin. They get it from her butt. It gets put on his face.

    Therefore, her face has not been altered. There is none of his butt-skin on his wife's face. She didn't have anything happen to her face.

    So when the mother-in-law kisses the wife on the cheek.... she's touching the same skin she's known all her life.

    I think the factual scenario was supposed to have the wife's face getting burned, and the husband donating some skin from his rump, which later the mother-in-law kisses after it grows on her daughter's face.

    OOPS

    Okay, my bad. I had misread it. I think I let some cultural bias slip in to my head when I was skimming the original joke, because it just never occured to me that the woman would say such a thing about the husband's mother. I'm always thinking of MEN complaining about their wives' mothers.

    Her butt skin on his face, and his mother kissing it. Got it. Sorry for the confuzzion.
