Joke Friday



John was a salesman's delight when it came to any kind of unusual gimmick. 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. It was about 5:30 that afternoon when Tommy, their 11 year old son, returned home from school over 2 hours late.

'Why are you so late getting home?' asked John.

'Several of us went to the library to work on an project,' said Tommy.
The robot then 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 Marsha.

'The Ten Commandments.' answered Tommy.
The robot went around and slapped him, knocking him off his chair again.

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 then walked around to John and delivered a resounding whack!

Marsha doubled over laughing; 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!'

With that the robot immediately walked around to Marsha and knocked her out of her chair......
