(An old joke with endless variations, including this one.)

A conversation between three Southern socialites:

Mrs. Jones: Why, Mrs. Brown, what a lovely diamond bracelet!

Mrs. Brown: Thank you! My husband gave it to me when our first child was born.

Mrs. Smith: That's nice.

Mrs. Jones: Do you see that black Rolls-Royce parked outside?

Mrs. Brown: Yes?

Mrs. Jones: My husband gave that to me when our first child was born.

Mrs. Smith: That's nice.

Mrs. Brown: Mrs. Smith, what did your husband give you when your first child was born?

Mrs. Smith: Why, he sent me to charm school.

Mrs. Jones: Charm school?

Mrs. Smith: Yes, before I went to charm school, I'd always say, "Who gives a shit?" But now I say, "That's nice."
