Q: A man walks into a bar and asks the barman for a glass of water. The
barman pulls out a gun and points it at the man. The man says 'thank you'
and walks out. What happened?
A: The man was listening to a radio programme where the DJ calls a

the listener they are calling - it is the man's wife, yet another man (her
lover) answered the phone.
