Two elderly widows named Esther and Sally were staying at a hotel when they became curious about the latest arrival in their building: a quiet, nice-looking gentleman who kept to himself.

Esther said, “Sally, you know I’m shy. Why don’t you go over to him at the pool and find out a little bit about him. He looks so lonely.”

Sally agreed and later that day at the pool she went up to him and said, “Excuse me, mister. I hope I’m not prying, but my friend and I were wondering why you looked so lonely.”

“Of course I’m lonely,” he replied. “I’ve spent the past 20 years in prison.”

“You’re kidding! What for?”

“For killing my third wife. I strangled her.”

“What happened to your second wife?”

“I shot her.”

“And, if I may ask, your first wife?”

“We had a fight and she fell off a building.”

“Oh my,” said Sally. Then, turning to her friend on the other side of the pool, she yelled, “Yoo-hoo, Esther, he’s single!”
