Title: Never lie to your father
Post by: Davy on Oct 09, 2008, 08:43:44 AM
Never lie to your father


John invited his father over for dinner. During the meal, his
father couldn't help noticing how beautiful John's roommate
Julie was.  He had long been suspicious of the relationship
between John and his roommate, and this only made him more
curious. Over the course of  the evening, while watching the
two interact, he started to wonder if there was more between
John and the roommate than met the eye.

Reading his dad’s thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking but I assure you, Julie and I are just roommates."

About a week later, Julie came to John and said, "Ever since
your father came to dinner, I can't find the beautiful silver
gravy ladle. You don't suppose he took it, do you?"

John said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write him a letter
just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote:

Dear Dad ,

I'm not saying you 'did' take a gravy ladle from my
house, and I'm not saying you 'did not' take a gravy
ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing
ever since you were here for dinner.

                              Love, John

Several days later, John received a letter from his father,
which read:

Dear Son,

I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Julie, and
I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with Julie.
But the fact remains that if she were sleeping in
her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by
now."

Congratulations, Dad
