Protecting the Greenhouse

Please note: No matter how pathetic this story sounds it’s
actually true.

One day, a man saw a stranger on his property. Ready to go to
extreme measures, he pulled out his pistol and stopped the guy
at gunpoint and called the police.

When the police arrived the man was still holding a gun to the
stranger, who turned out to be a college student.

The police offier said, “Put the gun away and tell me the story.”

The man said, “Well officer, I was watching TV in my basement
when a pair of footsteps went by the window. I knew it was
someone suspicious, so I sneaked out the back to see what he was
up to. When I got out, I caught him running out of the
greenhouse with the loot.”

The policeman, seeing the student with a few plants began to get
annoyed. “Is this really what you were stealing?” he asked the

However, before the student could answer, the man said, “Those
aren’t just any plants, those are my best pot plants!”
