Fearing the worst, Mr Smith asked for the bad news first.
"We're sorry to inform you, sir," the policeman said, "we found your wife's body in the San Francisco Bay this morning."
"Oh, my God!" said a distraught Mr. Smith. "What's the good news?"
"When we pulled her up," said the policeman, "she had two five-pound lobsters and a dozen crabs on her."
"What?" a confused Mr Smith exclaimed. "So, what's the great news?"
The officer replied, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow."
