Pre-Nuptial Agreements 
A secretary for a foreign embassy was entertaining a wealthy foreign ambassador during lunch at a very expensive restaurant in New York. 
The ambassador was so enthralled by the beauty and presence of this secretary that he asked her to marry him. The secretary was startled, but remembered that her boss told her never to insult foreign dignitaries, so she decided to let him down easy. 
"I'll only marry you under three conditions." 
"Anything, anything," said the ambassador. 
"First, you must buy me a 14-karat gold wedding band with a 72 carat diamond, along with a 28-inch studded matching necklace for our engagement." 
Without hesitation, the ambassador picked up his cellular phone, called his personal accountant, told him the instructions, and said, "Yes, yes, I buy, I buy!" 
The secretary thought that her first request was too easy, so she thought of a more difficult situation. 
"Second, I want you to build me a 58-acre mansion in the richest part of the Hamptons along with a 40-acre summer home in the sweetest vineyards of France." 
The ambassador picked up his phone, called his personal broker in New York, then called another broker in France, and after his quick conversation, he said, "Yes, yes, I build, I build!" 
The secretary was very startled, and knew she must think of a final request that would be impossible to live up to. 
"Finally," she said. "I'll only marry you if you have a 10-inch penis." 
A sad face befell the ambassador, and he cupped his face in his hands. After weeping in his native language for a few minutes, the ambassador slowly lifted his head and said, "Ok, ok, I cut, I cut!"

Lingerie Store Sells More 
        Then Lingerie
Along with sales of lingerie and high heels, police say the husband-and-wife shop did brisk business in illegal drug transactions.
But the alleged hawking of cocaine, marijuana and prescription painkillers at Nu-2-U Boutique in a Florida strip plaza came to an end with the arrest of Lori Steele, 46, and her 51-year-old husband, Steven.
"They were using Nu-2-U as a storefront to sell their drugs," Detective Joshua Peto said.
"They had customers come to the store to buy cocaine, marijuana, pills."
Steven Steele met an informant, giving the informant three OxyContin pills for cash before police in tactical raid gear tried to catch him. Steele drove off, tossing about 2 ounces of marijuana out his sport utility vehicle's window before an undercover detective blocked Steele's vehicle.
Police also are investigating whether the couple, who live on Southeast Aneci Street, used the establishment as a means to launder drug proceeds.
"According to my sources, they've been dealing for over a year out of the store," said the lead investigator in the case.
In one instance, Lori Steele offered an informant a receipt for $80 worth of oxycodone after putting the money in the register.
Police seemed especially concerned with the couple's alleged actions because of a neighboring daycare center.
"The people that were coming in and buying drugs from Lori and Steven . . . would walk by the child daycare center," Peto said.
An ample selection of lingerie and shiny high heels were in view at Nu-2-U, though the door was locked and no one appeared inside.
The Steeles could not be reached for comment, but Peto said they denied wrongdoing.
"They're shocked and amazed that they got in trouble for anything," he said.
Lori Steele, he added, acknowledged using cocaine, marijuana and prescription painkillers, but denied selling them.
Steven Steele faces charges including sale/delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana and tampering with evidence.
Investigators took his wife into custody on charges including possession of a controlled substance and sale/delivery of oxycodone. She was released on $55,000 bail, while her husband was free on $112,500 bail, a jail official said.
