Thursday Special ~ Can of Peas

Two elderly ladies meet at the launderette after not seeing one another for some time. After inquiring about each other’s health, one asked how the other’s husband was doing.

“Oh! Ted died last week. He went out to the garden to dig up a cabbage for dinner, had a heart attack and dropped down dead right there in the middle of the vegetable patch!”

“Oh dear! I’m very sorry,” replied her friend, “What did you do?”

“Opened a can of peas instead.”

Thanks to Noreen for this one!

    An old woman was arrested for shoplifting at a grocery store. When she appeared before the judge, the judge asked what she had taken. The lady replied, “A can of peaches.” The judge then asked why she had done it. She replied, “I was hungry and forgot to bring any cash to the store.” The judge asked how many peaches were in the can. She replied, “Nine.” The judge said, “Well then, I’m going to give you nine days in jail–one day for each peach.” As the judge was about to drop his gavel, the lady’s husband raised his hand and asked if he might speak. The judge said, “Yes, what do you have to add?” The husband said, “Your honor, she also stole a can of peas.”
