The good ol' days
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
George and his wife were getting ready to go to bed when they heard sounds coming from the shed outside.
George opened his back door and saw there were burglars in the shed stealing his tools.
He immediately phoned the police, who asked, “Is someone in your house?”
“No,” he said and explained the situation.
The dispatcher replied all patrols were busy, so he should simply lock his door, and an officer would be there when available.
George said, “Okay,” hung up, counted to 30 and phoned the police again.
“Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were burglars in my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now because I’ve just shot them all.”
Then he hung up.
Within five minutes three squad cars, an armed-response unit and an ambulance showed up. Of course, the police caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the policemen said, “I thought you said that you had shot them!”
“And,” George said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”
