The day after a man's wife disappeared while scuba diving, he was greeted at his door by two grim-faced policeman. "We're sorry to call on you at this hour Mr. Wilkens, but we have some information about your wife's disappearance."
"Well tell me!" the man demanded hoping for good news.
The policeman said, "We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news. Which do you want to hear first?"
Now fearing the worst Mr. Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news first".
"Mr. Wilkens I'm sorry to have to tell you sir, but this morning we found your wife's body in the San Francisco Bay".
"Oh my God!" said Mr. Wilkens. "Well what in heaven's name could possibly be the good news?"
"Well," said the policeman, "When we pulled her up she had two five-pound lobsters, and a halfdozen good-sized Dungeoness crabs on her."
"What? Well if that's the good news, then what's the really great news?" said Mr.Wilken's.
The policeman continued, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow."
