The policeman asked for a description of the missing man.
She described him clearly in detail: “He is 35 years old, 6’4”, has dark eyes, dark wavy hair an athletic build, ways 185 lbs, is soft spoken, and is fabulous with children.”
Her neighbour interrupted her protesting, and says, “Your husband is 5’8”, corpulent, bald, has a big mouth, and is horrid to your children.”
The wife replied with a sigh, “YES, but who wants HIM back.”
