The Mousetrap

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. “What food might this contain?” the mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

 After a couple of hours, a police officer approached the cell and opened the door.  She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

 

 He said, “I’m very sorry for this mistake.  You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping the person off in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at the top of your lungs.  I noticed the “What Would Jesus Do” bumper sticker, the “Follow Me to Sunday School” bumper sticker and the chrome-plated fish emblem on the trunk.”

 

“Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car.”
