Robin’s 2 cents

An 89 year old woman was arrested for shoplifting. When she went before the judge he asked her, “ What did you steal”. She replied, “A can of peaches”. The judge asked her why she had stolen the can of peaches she replied that she was hungry.

Then the judge asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied six. The judge said, “Then I will give you six days in jail”.

Before the judge could actually pronounce the punishment, the woman’s husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something on his wife’s behalf. The judge said, “What is it?” The husband said, “She also stole a can of peas.”
