Daily Joke: A Grumpy Woman Is Arrested for Shoplifting
After being arrested for shoplifting, a grumpy old woman is taken to court and sentenced by the judge. However, things took a different turn in the end.
A grumpy old woman went to a local supermarket to shop for groceries. However, she was caught shoplifting and held down at the supermarket until the police arrived.
The woman gave everyone a hard time, from the local store manager to the store's security guard. Even the police officer who came to arrest her felt the brunt of her bad temper.
A week after her arrest, the woman appeared in court. The magistrate asked her what she had stolen from the supermarket. and the woman replied that she stole a silly can of apricots and called the magistrate an old fool.
The judge asked her why she stole the can of apricots, and she explained that she forgot her purse at home. The judge asked the old woman how many apricots were in the can she stole, and she angrily replied:
"Nine! What's it to you?"
The judge responded by delivering her judgment. She ruled that the woman should be jailed for nine days, a day for each apricot in the can.
As the magistrate was about to wrap things up, the woman's husband raised his hand to say something. The judge asked him what he had to say, and he confidently replied, saying:
"Your Honour, she also stole two cans of peas."
Here is another joke about a judge who reached a verdict in a robbery case that surprised the suspect so much that he asked an unexpected question.
There was a high-profile robbery case in the city, and few arrests were made. One of the suspects was arraigned before the court. After two weeks, the jury reached their verdict.
On the day of the final hearing, the judge asked the jury if they had reached a verdict in the case. The jury foreman responded in the affirmative so the judge asked the foreman to pass the judgment.
After reading the verdict slip, the judge instructed the foreman to read the verdict to the court. The foreman did as instructed and read it out. The verdict read:
"We find the defendant Not Guilty of all four counts of bank robbery."
On hearing the judgment, the defendant's family leaped for joy, celebrating and giving God gratitude for the ruling. The suspect's attorney also turned to him and asked him how he felt about the verdict.
With a bewildered look on his face, the defendant turned to his attorney and said, "I'm real confused here. Does this mean that I have to give all the money back?"
