Tim was a salesmans delight when it came to any kind of unusual gimmick. One day Tim came home with another one of his unusual purchases. It was a robot lie detector.
About 5:30 that afternoon their 11 year old son returned home from school over 2 hours late.
"Where have you been"? asked Tim.
"Several of us went to the library to work on an extra credit project," said Tommy.
The robot then walked around the table and slapped Tommy, knocking him completely out of his chair.
"Son," said Tim, "this robot is a lie detector, now tell us where you really were after school."
"We went to Jonnys house and watched a movie." said Tommy.
"What did you watch?" asked Tommys mother Cary.
"The Ten Commandments." answered Tommy.
The robot went around to Tommy and once again slapped him, knocking him off his chair once more.
With his lip quivering, Tommy got up, sat down and said, "I am sorry I lied. we really watched a pornographic dvd movie."
"I am ashamed of you son," said Tim. "When I was your age, I never lied to my parents."
The robot then walked around to Tim and delivered a whack that nearly knocked him out of his chair.
Cary doubled over in laughter and said, "Boy, did you ever ask for that one! After all, he is your son!"
With that the robot whacked Cary and knocked her off her chair
