Mary went into her neighborhood pharmacy, walked up to Frank the pharmacist and calmly announced: "I would like to buy some cyanide."
Frank raised an eyebrow. Mary and her husband John had been good neighbors to him and his wife Sheila for many years and this was totally out of character. "Whatever would you want cyanide for, Mary?"
"I need it to poison John."
Frank sputtered. "Poison John? Mary, are you crazy? I can't give you cyanide. That would make me an accessory to murder. Why in the world would you want to poison John?"
Mary calmly removed a photo from her purse and gave it to the pharmacist. The man grew deadly quiet as he realized the photo was of his wife Sheila and John in a passionate embrace, a picture shot obviously through the window of the master bedroom of his own home.
Frank looked up at Mary. "Well, that's different," he finally said. "You didn't tell me you had a prescription."
