John invited his mother over for dinner. During the meal,
his mother couldn't help noticing how beautiful John's
roommate was. She had long been suspicious of a relationship
between John and his roommate and this only

John and the roommate than met the eye. Reading his mom's
thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be

About a week later, Julie came to John and said, "Ever since
your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the
beautiful silver gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it,
do you?"

John said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her a letter
just to be sure."

So he sat down and wrote:

"Dear Mother,

and I'm not saying you 'did not' take a gravy ladle. But the
fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were
here for dinner."

Several days later, John received a letter from his mother
which read:

"Dear Son,

I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Julie, and I'm not
saying that you 'do not' sleep with Julie. But the fact
remains that if she was sleeping in her own bed, she would
have found the gravy ladle by now.
