Missing Person in Alaska

This one was sent along by a buddy who is retired from the National Science Foundation. He was one of the guys who worked very hard in the 1990s to bring the Internet to The Masses ...so that we could all e-mail jokes to our friends....


The day after her husband disappeared in a kayaking accident, an Anchorage woman answered her door to find two grim-faced Alaska State Troopers.

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

"Tell me! Did you find him?" she cried.

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 Mrs. Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news first."

The trooper said, "I'm sorry to tell you, ma'am, but this morning we found your husband's body in Kachemak Bay."

"Oh my gosh!" exclaimed Mrs. Wilkens. Swallowing hard, she asked, "What's the good news?"

The trooper continued. "When we pulled him up he had two 25-pound king crabs and six good-size Dungeness crabs on him."

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

The trooper said, "The state Marine Biologist says this could go on indefinitely! So we're going to pull him up again tomorrow."
