A wife asks her husband, "Could you go to the shops for me? buy one carton of milk and, if they have eggs, get six."
A short time later, the husband comes back with six cartons of milk. The wife asks him, "Why on earth did you buy so much milk?"
He replies, "They had eggs."

The wife told him, if the shops got sell eggs, buy six eggs. But the husband did not listen properly and mis-interpret as, if the shops sell eggs, buy six cartons of milk instead of one.
The joke is about what happen when you didn't listen closely...... Got it?
