Good News & Bad News

Down in cajun country, a deputy sheriff went to the house of the old man whose wife was missing, and said to him "I have some good news and some bad news for you. Which would you like to hear first?"

The old man replied "Give me the bad news first"

"Well," said the deputy, "we just found your wife in the river, drowned."

The old man broke down and, crying hysterically, walked away from the deputy to grieve. A few minutes later he hobbled back to the deputy and asked "If that was the bad news, what's the good news?"

"Well" said the deputy, "when we fished her out of the water, there were ten, maybe twelve, big blue crabs on her... so we're sending her back down in the morning"
