Spoof Text - Foolish Accused Man

It was very hot in the small court room and every body was feeling sleepy, After a tiring morning, the clerks were anxious to get off to have lunch and even the judge must have felt relieved when the last case came up before the court. A short, middle-aged man with grey hair and small blue eyes was now standing before him. The man had a foolish expression on his face and he kept looking around stupidly as if he was trying hard to understand what was going on. 

The man was accused of breaking into a house and stealing a cheap watch. The witness who was called did not have a clear account of what had happened. He claimed to have seen a man outside the house one night, but on being questioned further, he confessed that he was not sure whether this was a man. The judge considered the matter for a short time and then declared that as there was no real proof, the man could not be found guilty of any crime. He said that the case was dismissed and then rose to go. Meanwhile, the accused looked very puzzled. It was clear that he had not understand a thing. Noticing this, the judge paused for a moment and then the man said suddenly, “Excuse me, Sir! But do I have to give the watch back or not?”

Spoof Text - He is not Phil Collins

Last week I took my five-year old son, Willy, to a musical instrument store in my hometown. I wanted to buy him a set of junior drum because his drum teacher advised me to buy him one. Willy likes listening to music very much. He also likes asking me everything he wants to know. Even his questions sometimes seem precocious for a boy of his age. He is very inquisitive.

We went there by car. On the way, we saw a policeman standing near a traffic  light regulating the passing cars and other vehicles. He blew his whistle now and then.

Seeing the policeman blowing his whistle, Willy asked me at once, “Dad, why is the policeman using a whistle, not a drum?”

Hearing his unexpected question I answered reluctantly, “Because he is not Phil Collins!”
