Sometimes we just need a laugh
A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her.
One of the bags had a hole in it and, every once in a while, a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk.
Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag."
"Oh really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me, officer.
"Well, now, not so fast," said the policeman. Where did you get all that money? You didn't steal it, did you?"
"Oh, no, no", said the old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to the golf course. On golf days, a lot of golfers come and pee through a knot hole in the fence, right into my flower garden. That kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, why not make the best of it? So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, 'O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes!'"
"Well, that seems only fair," said the cop, laughing. "O.K. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?"
"Well, you know," said the little old lady, "not everybody pays."
