My friend Hank sent me this.....

John was a salesman's delight when it came to any kind of unusual gimmicks.

His wife Marsha had long ago given up trying to get him to

One day John came home with another one of his unusual
purchases. It was a robot that John claimed was actually a lie detector.

It was about 5:30 that afternoon when Tommy,
their 11 year old son, returned home from school.

Tommy was over 2
hours late. "Where have you been? Why are you over 2 hours late getting home?" asked John.

"Several of us went to the library to work on an
extra credit project," said Tommy.

The robot walked around the table
and slapped Tommy, knocking him completely out of his chair.

said John, "This robot is a lie detector, now tell us where you really were after school."

"We went to Bobby's house and watched a movie.."
said Tommy.

"What did you watch?" asked Marsha.

"The Ten Commandments."
answered Tommy.

The robot went around to Tommy and once again slapped
him, knocking him off his chair.

With his lip quivering, Tommy got up
sat down and said, "I am sorry I lied. We really watched a tape called "Sex Queen."

"I am ashamed of you son," said John. "When I was your age, I never lied to
my parents."

The robot walked around to John and delivered a whack that
nearly knocked him out of his chair.

Marsha doubled over in laughter,
almost in tears and said, "Boy, did you ever ask for that one!

can't be too mad with Tommy. After all, he is your son!"

The robot
walked around to Marsha and knocked her out of her chair.
