Russ and Sam, two friends, very old and frail,met in the park every day to feed the birds,watch squirrels /ˈskwɪrəlz/  and discuss world/wɜː(r)ld/ problems.
One day Russ didn't show up.Sam didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something. But after Rưss hadn't shown up for a week or so, Sam really go worried.
However, since the only time they ever got together at the park, Sam didn't know where Russ lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.
A month had passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Russ. But one day,Sam approached the park and lo and behold ! There sat Russ! Sam was very excited and happy to see him and told him so.
Then he cried out loud : "Russ,what in the world happened to you?"
Russ replied,"I was in jail."
" Jail ? " cried Sam. " What in the world for?"
" Well," Russ said, " You know Sue, that cute sexy little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?"
"Yeah," said Sam ," I remember her . What about her?"
" Well, one day she filed rape charges against me, and, at 89 years old, I was so  proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty'". The damn judge gave me thirty days for lying under oath."  ( Photos: Google)
