On my husband’s second visit to the exercise class he enrolled in, he used the rowing machines, rode a stationary bicycle and did leg exercises with one-kilo weights attached to each ankle. When he finished, he walked ten minutes to the parking lot where he had parked his car, then picked me up. “I’m exhausted,” he complained. “I wonder if I should continue this program.” When we got home, he trudged into the house and finally sat down to rest his tired legs. He eased his shoes off – and discovered the weights still strapped to his ankles.

A woman is brought to court after stealing from a supermarket. “Mrs. Cooper,” says the judge, “What did you take?” “Just a small can of peaches,” she answers. “There were only six peaches in the can.” “Six peaches... hmm...I sentence you to six nights in jail, a night for each peach.” The woman is crushed. She’s about to collapse to the floor when her husband, seated in the gallery, leaps to his feet. “Your Honor,” he shouts, “she also stole a can of peas!”
