The day after his wife disappeared in a car accident, a man answered his door to find two grim-faced Nigerian Policemen, “We are sorry Mr. Maxwell, but we have some
information about your wife,” said one of the Policeman.
“Tell me! Did you find her?!” Maxwell shouted.
The Policemen 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, Mr. Maxwell said, “Give me the bad news first.”
The Police said, “I’m sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning, we found your wife’s body in the sea under the Bridge.”
“Oh my God!” exclaimed Maxwell swallowing hard, he asked, “What’s the good news?”
The Police continued, “When we brought her out, she had five fishes and three tortoises clinging to her.”
Stunned, Mr. Maxwell demanded, “If that’s the good news, what’s the great news?”
The Police said, “We are going to bring her out again tomorrow.”
