AGE OF INNOCENCE

> GAG OF THE MONTH

A POLICEMAN is patrolling late at night in a well-known lovers’ spot where cars get parked and illicit activities engaged in.

He sees a couple in a car, with the interior light brightly glowing.

The cop carefully approaches the car to get a closer look. He sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine. He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, knitting.

Puzzled by this surprising situation, the cop gently taps on the driver’s window.

The young man lowers his window. “Uh, yes, officer?”

“What are you doing?” the policeman asks.

“Well officer, I’m reading a magazine,” the man replies.

Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat, the cop asks: “And what is she doing?”

The young man shrugs: “I believe she’s knitting a jumper, sir.”

Now, the cop is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in a lovers’ lane – and nothing obscene is happening!

The policeman asks: “How old are you, young man?”

“I’m 22, sir.”

“And how old is your lady friend?”

The young man looks at his watch and replies: “She’ll be 18 in 11 minutes.”
