No Officers Available

English: Peel Region Police cars in Malton, Canada (Photo credit: Wikipedia)A man was going up to bed when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. He opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there was a burglar in the shed taking things to a truck they had parked on the curb.

He phoned the police, who asked if the intruder was in his home, to which he responded that he wasn’t. They responded that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.

A local barber shop installed a new robotic barber to take some off the pressure off the owner.

A fellow came in for a haircut and after being told about the “new barber” decided he would give it a try.

As the robot began to cut his hair, it asked the man, “What’s your IQ, sir?”

“143,” the man replied.
