One of the bags was ripped, and every once in awhile, a $20 bill fell out onto the sidewalk.
Noticing this, a Policeman stopped her, and said, “Ma’am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag you’re dragging”.
“Oh, really? Darn it!”, said the old lady“I’d better go back and see if I can find them!
Thanks for telling me, Officer..” “Well, now, not so fast,” said the cop “Where did you get all that money from? You didn’t steal it, did you?!”
“Oh, no no no”, said the old lady “You see, my back-yard is right next to the football stadium parking lot,
On game-days, a lot of fans come and through a knot-hole in the fence, right into my flower garden! It used to really tick me off Kills the flowers you know?”
She continues, “Then, I thought, ‘why not make the best of it?’ So, now, on game-days, I stand behind the fence by the knot-hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers
Every time some guy sticks his through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it, and say, ‘Okay buddy! Give me $20 bucks, or off it comes!’
“Well, that seems only fair”, said the cop, laughing “Alright, good luck! And oh, by the way, what’s in the other bag?”
“Well, you know”, said the little old lady, “not everybody pays”.
