Drilling rights

Tom was an owner of an oil conglomerate who had married a pretty young thing fifteen years younger to him.

One day, Tom barged into his lawyer’s office and demanded, “I want a divorce!"

The Lawyer asked, “On what grounds?”

Tom replied, "I want to charge her with breach of contract.”

The Lawyer said, “What contract? Your spouse is not your property. She is your wedded wife but you don’t own her.”

Tom said, “Well then, I want sole and exclusive rights to drill.”
