Cranky old woman

A cranky old woman was arrested for shoplifting at a grocery store. 
She gave everyone a hard time, from the store manager to the security
 guard to the arresting officer who took her away, complaining and 
criticizing throughout the process.
When she appeared before the judge, the judge asked what she had
 stolen from the store. The lady defiantly replied, "Just a stupid can 
of peaches."
The judge then asked why she had done it. She replied,
 "I was hungry and forgot to bring any cash to the store."
The judge asked how many peaches were in the can. 
She replied, "Nine, but what do you care about that?"
The judge patiently said, "Well, ma'am, because I'm going
 to give you nine days in jail -- one day for each peach."
As the judge was about to drop gavel, the lady's long suffering 
husband raised his hand and asked if he might speak.
The judge said, "Yes, what do you have to add?"
The husband said, "Your Honor, she also stole a can of peas."
