|Two elderly friends, Jack and Tom, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems.
One day Jack didn't show up. Tom didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something.
But after Jack hadn't shown up for a week or so, Tom got worried. Unfortunately he didn't know where Jack lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.
After a month passed, Tom figured he had seen the last of Jack, but one day, Tom approached the park and -- lo and behold there sat Jack ! Tom, excited and happy, said how glad he was to see him, then blurted out, "For crying out loud, what on earth happened to you?"
"I've been in jail," Jack said, with some embarrassment.
"Jail?" cried Tom. "What in the world for?"
"Well," Jack said, "you know Marilyn , that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where we sometimes go?"
"Yeah," said Tom, "I remember her. What about her?"
"Well, one day she filed rape charges against me and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty'.
"And you were convicted of rape?", asked Tom, stunned.
Jack replied, "No, the judge gave me thirty days for perjury."
