Lie Detector Robot

Lie Detector Robot

John was a salesman's delight when it came

to any kind of unusual gimmicks. His wife,

Marsha, had long ago given up trying to get

him to change.

One day John came home with another one

of his unusual purchases.

It was a robot that John claimed was actually

a lie detector. At 5:30 that afternoon, his 11

year old son, Tommy, returned home from

school two hours late.

"Where have you been? Why are you over

2 hours late getting home?" asked John.

"Several of us went to the library to work

on an extra credit project," said Tommy.

The robot walked around the table and

slapped Tommy, knocking him completely

out of his chair.

"Son," said John, "this robot is a lie

detector, now tell us where you really

were after school."

"We went to Bobby's house and watched

a movie." said Tommy.

"What did you watch?" asked his mother.

"The Ten Commandments." answered Tommy.

The robot went around to Tommy and once

again slapped him, knocking him off his chair.

With his lip quivering, Tommy got up, sat

down and said, "I am sorry I lied. We really

watched a tape called Sex Queen."

"I am ashamed of you son," said John.

When I was your age, I never lied to my parents."

The robot walked around to John and

delivered a whack that knocked

him out of his chair.

Marsha doubled over in laughter, almost

in tears, and said, "Boy, did you ever ask

for that one! You can't be too mad

with Tommy. After all, he is your son!"

The robot walked around to Marsha

and knocked her out of her chair.
