From the Email

A cop was patrolling late at night in a well-known spot and sees a couple in a car, with the interior light brightly glowing. The cop carefully approaches the car to get a closer look, and sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine, then notices a young woman in the rear seat, filing her fingernails.

Puzzled by this surprising scene, the cop walks to the car and gently raps on the driver's window.

The young man lowers his window. "Uh, yes, Officer?"

The cop says: "What are you doing?"

The young man says: "Well, Officer, I'm reading a magazine."

Pointing towards the young, good-looking woman in the back seat the cop says: "And her, what is she doing?"

The young man shrugs: "Sir, I believe she's filing her fingernails."

Now, the cop is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in a lover's lane ... and nothing obscene is happening!

The cop asks: "What's your age, young man?"

The young man says: "I'm 22, sir."

The cop asks: "And her ... what's her age?"

The young man looks at his watch and replies: "She'll be 18 in 11 minutes." (from JS)
