Mr. & Mrs. Smith have been back from their honeymoon for two weeks when Mr. Smith comes home from work and says that he has invited 4 of his friends from the office home for dinner on Friday night. The wife is a bit apprehensive and asks if she must cook a meal for the four.
The husband explains that there will be eight coming because each will bring his wife. Since this is there first party, the husband consoles her by saying that all she has to do is get some Chinese food in and perhaps she can bake a cake.
Friday morning wife calls the office in tears. She explains that the only cake recipe she has will only feed six.
Hubby says, "Why don't you just double the recipe?"
"I just can't do it," wifey weeps. "It's impossible."
"What's the matter?"
"Well, their recipe calls for two eggs..."
"So, you use FOUR eggs. Don't you have them?
"Yes, well, actually it isn't the ingredients," the wife sobs, "it says that the cake must be baked at 350 degrees and I have checked the oven, and I can't turn the heat up to 700 degrees!"

This one was sent in by a good buddy of mine… less of a joke and more of an auto-correct issue, but still quite funny.
