A Can of Peaches
A woman was arrested for shoplifting. When she went before the judge he asked her, "What did you steal?"
"A can of peaches," she replied.
The judge asked her why she had stolen them and she replied that she was hungry.
The judge then asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied "six".
The judge then said, "I will give you 6 days in jail."
Before the judge could actually pronounce the punishment the woman's husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something.
The judge, figuring he was going to make a speech pleading for leniency, figured he pretty much had to let him speak. "Go ahead, sir," he said.
The husband said, "She also stole a can of peas."
