Leo and Franz, two friends living in Munich, meet in the park every day.
They feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems, and then have a beer at the nearby beer garden.
One day Franz didn’t show up. Leopold didn’t think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something. But after Franz hadn’t shown up for a week or so, Leo really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Leo didn’t know where Franz lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.
A month passed, and Leo figured he had seen the last of Franz, but one day, Leo approached the park and – lo and behold! – there sat Franz! Leo was very excited and happy to see him and told him so.
Then he said, ‘For crying out loud Franz, what in the world happened to you?’
Franz replied, ‘I have been in jail.’
‘Jail!’ cried Leo. What in the world for?’
‘Well,’ Franz said, ‘you know Gretchen, that cute little blonde waitress at the beer garden where we sometimes go?’
‘Yeah,’ said Leo, ‘I remember her. What about her?’
‘Well, the little gold-digging witch figured I was rich and she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded ‘guilty’.
‘The judge gave me 30 days for perjury.’
