It was the usual scene in the City's Night Court, the Police had rounded up the usual collection of street walkers and brought them before the Judge; three stood before him, all arrested on the same corner. He asked the first *lady* what she had to say for herself. The woman was irate, "I don't know what all this is about your Honor. I'm a college student doing research for a term paper." The Judge sighed and said, "Well, Miss, I would have thought you'd done enough research' by now. My computer says you have two prior convictions. Thirty days and $250 fine." He then turned to the second *lady* and requested her to testify. The woman began crying softly and said, "Judge, I am just a housewife out getting a pack of cigarettes for my husband. I have no idea why I was arrested." This time, the Judge shook his head and said, "Well, young lady, the officer tells me that he saw you had a stack of bills along with the cigarettes to your 'husband' in his new Cadillac. Thirty days and $250 fine." He turned to the last of the trio and asked her occupation. The woman said simply, "I'm a hooker." Refreshed at her honesty, the Judge laughed and said, "How's business?" She sneered and replied, "Terrible, Judge, with all these students and housewives around, I can't turn a single trick."
