Okay, here's another one courtesy of soon-to-be jokemeister Mark Bell. He claims it is of Spanish origin, but I wouldn't trust a bespectacled Australian. A man's house is broken into one night, and his TV and VCR are stolen. However, the next week, the thief is miraculously caught by the police, and the stolen goods recovered. Testament, no doubt, to the efficiency of the Spanish police force. So the man who was robbed strolls down to the police station and demands to speak to the thief. The police explain to him that that is not necessary because he was caught red-handed, is sure to do time, and all the property had already been returned to the rightful owner. But the man was not satisfied. So the police ask him exactly WHY he wants to talk to the thief. The man looks about sheepishly then, in a softer voice, enunciated: "I want to know how he got into the house without waking my wife."
