Lie Detector

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.

Tommy was over 2 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 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

'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 to Tommy and once again slapped
him, knocking him off his chair once more.

With his lip quivering, Tommy got up, sat down and said,
'I am sorry I lied. We really watched a tape called Sex

'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
whack that nearly 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!'

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