Burglars In The Shed

Round Like A Shot.

Going to bed the other night, I noticed people in my shed stealing things.

I phoned the police but was told no one was in the area to help.  They said they would send someone over as soon as possible.

I hung up.  A minute later I rang again. ‘Hello,’ I said, ‘I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed.  You don’t have to hurry now, because I’ve shot them.

Within minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area, plus helicopters and an armed response unit.  They caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the officers said: ‘I though you said you’d shot them.’

To which I replied: ‘I thought you said there was no one available.’
