A married woman is having an affair. Whenever her
lover comes over, she puts her nine year old son in the closet. One day the woman hears a
car in the driveway and puts her lover in the closet, as well.
Inside the closet, the little boy says, "It's dark in here,
isn't it?" "Yes it is," the man replies. "You wanna buy a
baseball?," the little boy asks. "No thanks," the man replies. "I

the man replies "OK. How much?" "Twenty-five dollars," the little boy
replies. "TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS?!" the man repeats incredulously, but complies to

the woman again when she hears a car in the driveway and, again, places her lover in the

says "Hey son, go get your ball and glove and we'll play some catch." "I
can't. I sold them," replies the little boy. "How much did you get for
them?," asks the father, expecting to hear the profit in terms of lizards and candy.
"Seventy-five dollars," the little boy says. "SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS?! That's
thievery! I'm taking you to church right now. You must confess your sin and ask for
forgiveness," the father explains as he hauls the child away.
At the church, the little boy goes into the
confessional, draws the curtain, sits down, and says "It's dark in here, isn't
"Don't you start that crap in here
now," the priest replies.
