Gerry and Ken


Gerry and Ken, two elderly friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the possums and discuss world problems.

One day Ken didn't show up. Gerry didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something. But after Ken hadn't shown up for a week or so, Gerry really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Gerry didn't know where Ken lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.

A month had passed, and Gerry figured he had seen the last of Ken, but one day, Gerry approached the park and -- lo and behold! -- there sat Ken! Gerry was very excited and happy to see him and told him so, then he said, "For crying out loud Ken, what in the world happened to you?"

Ken replied, "I have been in jail."

"Jail?" cried Gerry. "What in the world for?"

"Well," Ken said, "you know Jenny, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?"

"Yeah," said Gerry, "I remember her. What about her?"

"Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years of age, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded guilty and the judge gave me 30 days!"

"You only got 30 days for rape?!"

"Nah... for perjury."
