A wife was making a report to a police officer: “I sent my husband out to the garden to fetch a cabbage for the dinner pot,” she explained. “I waited and waited but he didn’t come back. So, finally I went out to look for him and there he was lying dead in the cabbages!”

“Oh how terrible,” exclaimed the policeman. “What did you do?”

“I opened a can of peas,” she replied.
