I got this is an email a while back and thought I'd share.
Mrs. Botchagalupe comes to visit her son Anthony for dinner.
Anthony lives with a female roommate, Maria.
During the course of the meal, Mama can't help but notice how pretty
Anthony's roommate is.
She had long been suspicious of the relationship between the two, and
this made her more curious.
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she
started to wonder if there was more between Anthony and his roommate
than meets the eye.
Reading his Mom's thoughts, Anthony volunteered, "I know what you must
be thinking, but I assure you, Mama, Maria and I are just roommates."
About a week later, Maria came to Anthony saying, "Ever since your
mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver sugar bowl.
You don't suppose she took it, do you?"
Well, I doubt it, but I'll e-mail her, just to be sure."
So he sends his Mom an email:
I'm not saying that you took the sugar bowl from my house, and I'm not
saying that you didn't take it, I'm just saying that it has been missing
ever since you were here for dinner. Love, Anthony
Several days later, Anthony receives an email response from his Mama:
I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Maria, and I'm not saying that
you 'do not' sleep with her. But the fact remains that if she was
sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the sugar bowl by now.
MORAL: Never lie to your Mother
I thought this was quite cute.
