Imagine That


A leading banker had an urgent need to speak to his wife. He rang home and the maid answered. “Get me my wife — it’s important!”

“I’m sorry sir, she can’t come to the phone.” “Get her; I must speak to her.” “I’m sorry, she’s unavailable.”

“It’s urgent. Why can’t she come to the phone?”

“She’s upstairs, sir, in bed with … well, I assumed it was you, sir.”

“That does it.” The banker exploded, “Go to my study, in the top right-hand drawer of my desk is a loaded gun. Shoot them both dead!”

“I can’t do that sir!” “If you change your mind, there’s a $300,000 penthouse for you at Surfers’ Paradise and a $100,000 cash bonus.”

Pause.

“Will you hold on sir?”

Three minutes’ silence, then two shots.

“Are you there sir?”

“Are they both dead?”

“Well, you’re wife is definitely dead, sir, and I think that the gentleman would have expired by now. He was bleeding profusely as he stumbled downstairs, crashed through the French-windows, staggered out onto the patio and fell face-down in the swimming pool.”

“FRENCH-WINDOWS? PATIO? SWIMMING POOL? IS THAT 9889 0678?”
