    "Well, tell me!" the man said.

    The policeman said, "We have some bad news, some good news and some
    really great news. Which do you want to hear first?"

    Fearing the worst, Mr. Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news first."

    So the policeman said, "I'm sorry to tell you sir, but this morning we
    found your wife's body in San Francisco Bay."

    "Oh my god!" said Mr. Wilkens, overcome by emotion. Then, remembering
    what the policeman had said, he asked, "What's the good news?"

    "Well," said the policeman, "When we pulled her up she had two
    five-pound lobsters and a dozen good size Dungeoness crabs on her."

    "If that's the good news than what's the great news?!" Mr. Wilkens

    The policeman said, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow
