Never Lie To Your Mother


Recommended Posts

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

made her more curious.

interact, she started to wonder if there was more between

John and the roommate than met the eye. Reading his mom's

thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be

thinking, but I assure you, Julie and I are just



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,


I'm not saying you 'did' take a gravy ladle from my house,

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.
