An Old Joke That Made Me Smile

A man and his wife go kayaking in Alaska. The wife's kayak flips and she disappears beneath the waves. The next day two grim-faced Alaska State Troopers appear at the man's house in Anchorage.

"We're sorry, Mr. Wilkens, but we have some information about your wife," one trooper said.

"Tell me! Did you find her?" Wilkens shouted.

The Troopers looked at each other. One said, "We have some bad news, some good news, and some really GREAT news. Which do you want to hear first?"

Fearing the worst, an ashen-faced Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news first."

The Trooper said, "I'm sorry to tell you, Sir, but this morning we found your wife's body in Kachemak Bay."

"Oh my God!" exclaimed Wilkens. Swallowing hard, he asked, "What's the good news?"

The Trooper continued, "When we pulled her up, she had 12 twenty-five pound king crabs, 10 snow crabs, and 6 good-size Dungeness crabs clinging to her body."

Stunned, Wilkens demanded, "If that's the good news, what's the great news?"

The Trooper said, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow."
