Wife: “Why are you sitting in front of the TV?”

Husband: “Why not?”

Wife: “Have you forgotten that you are supposed to dig up the garden so that I can plant seeds?”

Husband: “Why don’t you hire a gardener?”

Wife: “And waste money! What are you there for?”

Husband: “OK! OK! I’ll do it!”

Wife: “You’d better! Or you can forget about dinner! Now get going with your work – I’ll do some shopping, in the meantime!”


Phone rings: “Tring Tring!”

Policeman: “Hello!”

Strange voice: “Is this the police station?”

Policeman: “Yes, what can I do for you?”

Strange voice:
“I have some important news for you.”

Policeman: “Who’s speaking?”

Strange voice: “That is not important. What is important is my news!”

Policeman: “What is the news?”

Strange voice: “This is about the burglary in the jeweller’s shop that took place two days ago.”

Policeman: “What about it?”

Strange voice: “I know where the burgled jewellery is hidden!”


Wife: “Wow! That was fast! Well done! The whole garden is dug up beautifully.”

Husband: “My pleasure! Always happy to be of service to my dear wife.”


Wife (putting down the phone receiver and looking puzzled): “That was our neighbour on the phone! She was asking why the police had visited our house this afternoon. Do you know anything about it?”

Husband (innocently): “Oh! I forgot to tell you. Yes, a bunch of policemen did visit our house this afternoon, while you were out shopping. It was they who dug up the whole garden! They seemed to be looking for something. I wonder what it was!”
