Parody chain letter.  Husband exchange.  "But it took three undertakers 36 hours to erase the grin off her face." (early)   US, 1968.
Dear Friend: This chain letter was started by a woman like yourself in hope of bringing relief to tired and discontented women. Unlike most chain letters, this does not cost anything. Send a copy of it to one of your friends who is equally tired, then bundle up your husband and send him to the woman whose name appears at the top of the list and then add your name to the bottom of the list. When your name comes to the top of the list, you will receive 16,478 men and some of them have been dandies.
Have faith and don't break this chain. One woman broke it and got her own essohbee back!  - Discontented Wife.

P.S. At the time of this writing, a friend of mine received 183 men. They buried her yesterday. But it took three undertakers 36 hours to erase that grin off her face.
