The Policeman had stopped the man for obvious drunken driving, but since the guy had a clean record, he made him park the car and took him home in the patrol car. “Are you sure this is your house?” the cop asked as they drove into a rather fashionable neighbourhood.
“Shertainly!” said the drunk, “and if you’ll just open the door f’me, I can prove it to ya”. Entering the living room, he said, “You shee that piano? Thash mine. You shee that giant television set? Thast mine too. Now follow me”.
The police officer followed the man as he shakily negotiated the stairs to the second floor. The drunk pushed open the first door they came to. “Thish ish my bedroom”, he announced. “Shee the bed there? Thast mine! Shee that woman lying in the bed? Thash my wife. An’ see that guy lying next to her?”
“Yeah?” the cop replied suspiciously. Beginning at this point to seriously doubt the man’s story.
“Well, thash me!”
