On of the assistant dive instructors Al told this story about himself. It may not be funny to you but it struck me as funny. He was talking about the police department in the city he lives in and how they are idiots. Apparently he is been in contact with them several times. I am trying to tell this the way he did minus the cuss words. Al was telling about a time that his wife was mad at him. She started beating on him. He put his hand in his back pockets so he could not be accused of hitting her. The police entered the scene. He pointed out to them that his hands were in his back pockets so there services were not needed. The police that they were going to take his wife into custody for assault. He called them a name and told them to leave them alone, she was not hurting him.
This struck me as funny. For these reasons: One, his wife beats on his when she is mad? That is a little scary. Not that she could hurt him but that she resorts to violence. Interesting. ( If it were ever necessary for me to hit someone it would hurt) Two, Why is he telling me this? And how did the police know she was hitting him? Was it in public? That brought on mental images. It struck me as funny.
