A man was going up to bed, when his wife told him he'd left the light on in
the garden shed - she could see it from the bedroom window. But he said
that he hadn't been in the shed that day. He looked himself, and there
were people in the shed, stealing things.
He rang the police, but they told him that no one was in his area, so no
one was available to catch the thieves. He said OK, hung up, counted
to 30 and rang the police again.
"Hello. I just rang you a few seconds ago because there were people in my
Within five minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area, an
Armed Response unit, the works. Of course, they caught the burglars
red-handed. One of the policeman said to this man, "I thought you said
you'd shot them!"
He replied, "I thought you said there were no cops available!"

Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the bartender again
saying, "That's 40 more cents, please."
They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand.
They've each had two martinis and so far they've spent less than a dollar.
Finally one of the men couldn't stand it any longer and asks the

beer, all the same."
"Wow. That's quite a story" says one of the men.
The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice

Een afschuwelijk ongeval op de golfbaan. Een man slaat af, de bal schengt en raakt zijn echtgenote vol op het hoofd. Dood.
De officier van justitie heeft geluiden opgevangen over een ernstig verstoorde relatie tussen die twee en vermoedt opzet. Hij gelast lijkschouwing. De patholoog-anatoom onderzoekt het lichaam. De verwonding aan de schedel is snel geconstateerd. Bij nader onderzoek vindt hij echter ook een golfbal in de anus. Daarmee geconfronteerd verklaart de verdachte: dat is mijn provisional.
