An old woman was arrested for shoplifting at a grocery store.
When she appeared before the judge, the judge asked what she had taken.
The lady replied, “A can of peaches.” The judge then asked why she had done it.
She replied, “I was hungry and forgot to bring any cash to the store.”
The judge asked how many peaches were in the can. She replied, “Nine.”
The judge said, “Well then, I’m going to give you nine days in jail, one day for each peach.”
As the judge was about to drop his gavel, the lady’s husband raised his hand and asked if he might speak.
The judge said, “Yes, what do you have to add?”
The husband said, “Your honour, she also stole a can of peas.”
