Joke of The Day 

 A Man is walking home late at night and sees a woman lurking in the shadows.
"Twenty dollars," she whispers.
He had never had a hooker before, but decides - what the hell, it's only twenty dollars. So he joins her in the bushes.
They're going at it for a couple of minutes when, all of a sudden, a light flashes on them. It's a police officer.
"'What's going on here, people?" asks the officer.
"I'm making love to me wife," the man answers sounding annoyed.
"Oh, I'm so sorry," says the cop, "I didn't know"
''Well, neither did I," he said, "till you shined the light in her face!!"
