“More fur your Money” Last time:
Joe “Thank You officer!’ ‘Pleasure doing business with you.”
Police “I just got a good idea.” “How would you like to make some extra money.”
Joe “Oh-no! I see that look in your eyes, no no no I can’t help you can not help you catch those bad guys’ ‘I’m allergic to bullets.
Police “Just think about it.” “Thanks for fur!” To Be Continued
Before the cop can leave, a store owner came running out of his store.
Store owner “You not going to arrest him!, your not going to arrest him?!”
Police “No he’s not the right man!”
Store owner “What do you mean, he’s not the right one, didn’t you look at-em, you crazy? of course he’s the right man.’ ‘You basted you! He said as he snarled at Joe.
Police “Now that is enough,’ I already check him out, and he was clean.” He said as he grabbed the old man to hold him back. “He’s clean.’ “Now go back into your store, I need to get further statements from you before I do my report.
As the man reluctantly goes back, the cop apologizes to Joe and says; “Please forgive that old man, he’s had a rough life” ‘He’s one of the few fur merchants that survived the great depression.”
Joe “The great depression?’ Damn! He is old.” “It’s quite alright’
Police “Good man!” “You think about what I said, if you can help, I will make it worth you wile.’ ‘Okay?”
Joe “I’ll think about it,’ but if I do, you are going to have to get me a vest,’ I would like to live to spend the money.”
Police “Don’t worry I will keep you real safe.”
Joe “Cool, I still want a vest, later copper, I am long over due getting home to my wife.” “Peace Man! As he leaves he see’s a man watching him after he was talking to the cop, when he did not pay him any mind and walked away he could still feels something uneasy about his stare. It kind of stuck in his mind. However he got into his car and drove off.
Shela “Hay babe; SMACK!! “Your late, and why did you not call me,’? “I was worried!”
Joe “Damn girl,’ “Your smacks are getting harder everyday.’ “Why don’t you give you daddy a little smack on the lips?
Shela “Mmmmmmmmm Smooch!” Sorry babe, what took you so long?
Joe “First of all this”
Shela “Woowh $300.00′ You maid some money!’ “Wow!’ ‘What ales?’
Joe “I got stopped buy a cop”
Shela “A cop!’ ‘What happened?
Joe “Apparently someone has been hitting all the fur dealerships downtown and he saw me riding around with boxes of fur coats, me a black man, I’m fortunate it was not in the 60’s I would have been shot on site.”
Shela “You look alright he did not rough you.”
Joe “No in fact he was incredibly polite and courteous’ ‘He was the one that I got the $300.00 from.” “However there is a little bad news about that”
Joe “He bought the one I wanted to give you for our anniversary.’ I am sorry.’ ‘I gotta get your another one.”
Shela “I don’t even care about that, we need groceries, let’s go to the store.”
Joe “I will still get you another one.”
Shela “There is something ales.”

Joe “I know babe let’s not talk about this right now, lets go to the store.”
