A lawyer who works in Texas gets a call about an emergency which requires
him to immediately fly out of the state for a short period of time. He has
no time to pack, so he calls home to tell his wife he is going.
The maid answers the call, but is quite hesitant about putting his wife on
the phone. After quite a bit of interrogation, she admits that the wife is
upstairs in bed with the mailman! The lawyer is furious, and wants to rush
right home, but of course there is this emergency he must take care of.
So instead, he tell the maid to go get the gun from the desk drawer and
kill both his wife and the mailman. She protests! The lawyer explains that
under Texas law it is legal to kill your adulterous wife and her lover.
Using his silver tongue, he finally convinces her to do it. She puts down
the phone, and soon the lawyer hears the sound of two guns shots, a scream,
some loud thumps, and finally, two splashes.
The maid comes back to the phone. The lawyer asks, "Did you kill them?"
"Yes," she replies.
The lawyer questions her again, "What did you do with the bodies?"
"I threw them in the pool," she responds.
There is a brief pause from the lawyer. He ask her, "Did you say the
"Yes! I threw them in the pool!" she says.
"Umm, is this the Smith residence... 992-2711?
