Robbers Shot


Going to bed the other night, I noticed people in my shed stealing things.

I phoned the police but was told no one was in the area to help.  They said they would send someone over as soon as possible.

I hung up.  A minute later I rang again. ‘Hello’ I said, ‘I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed.  You don’t have to hurry now, because I’ve shot them.’

Within minute there were half a dozen police cars in the area, plus helicopters and an armed response unit.  They caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the officers said: ‘I thought you said you’d shot them.’

To which I replied: ‘I thought you said there was no one available.’

Two things I get from this letter to the editor:  Tony doesn’t like commas, and Tony doesn’t understand triage.

    This is an urban legend, still funny none the less


    don’t you see, those cops were pulling some little girl from a well. Now that little girl is dead cause of a weed wacker. 🙁

    Urban Legend? The same thing happened to me only I sodomized them with my Milwaukee Sawzall. This shit really does happen.
