When he went before the judge he asked him,
"What did you steal?"
He replied: "A can of peaches."
The judge asked him why he had stolen them.
He replied that he was on a fixed income
and need to curtail his spending.
The judge then asked him how many peaches were in the can.
He replied," 6."
The judge then said,
"I will give you 6 days in jail."
Before the judge could actually pronounce the
punishment LaBeaver's wife
spoke up and
asked the judge if she could say something.
He said, " What is it? "
The wife said "he also stole a can of peas."
