Russ and Sam, two friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons,
watch the squirrels and discuss world 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 Russ hadn’t shown up for a week
or so, Sam really got worried.However, since the only time they ever got
together was 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!

rape charges against me; and, at 72 years old, I was so proud that when I
got into court, I pleaded ‘guilty’.
‘The judge gave me 30 days for perjury.’
