A little bit of whimsy this week.
“You’re not trying hard for promotion are you PC Dilley?”
“What’s the major piece of evidence in this case?”
“A prosthetic leg was left behind, sir.”
“And what do all the suspects you’ve trooped in have in common?”
“Two legs, sir.”
“Exactly, they’ve all got two legs. We hardly need strip searches to determine that.”
“No sir. I just thought maybe the leg was a red herring.”
“You mean planted to confuse us?”
“And consequently this lot are here because…?”
“They all work in the prosthetic limbs factory, sir.”
“My God, Dilley, you’ll make Sergeant yet.”
