Tired of constantly being broke &
stuck in an unhappy marriage,
a young husband decided to solve both problems
by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife
with himself as the beneficiary,
and then arranging to have her killed.
A 'friend of a friend'
put him in touch with a nefarious dark-side underworld figure
who went by the name of 'Artie.'
Artie explained to the husband that his going price for
snuffing out a spouse was $5,000.
The husband said he was willing to pay that amount,
but that he wouldn't have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money.
Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front,
so the man opened his wallet,
displaying the single dollar bill that rested inside.
Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, & reluctantly agreed
to accept the dollar as down payment for the dirty deed.
A few days later,
Artie followed the man's wife to the local Super Wal-Mart store.
There, he surprised her in the produce department &
proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands.
As the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath &
slumped to the floor, the manager of the produce
department stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene.
Unwilling to leave any living witnesses behind,
ol' Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well.
However, unknown to Artie,
the entire proceedings were captured by the hidden security
cameras & observed by the store's security guard,
who immediately called the police.
Artie was caught and arrested
before he could even leave the store.
Under intense questioning at the police station,
Artie revealed the whole sordid plan,
including his unusual financial arrangements
with the hapless husband
who was also quickly arrested.
The next day in the
newspaper, the headline declared . . .
'ARTIE CHOKES 2 for $1.00 @ WAL-MART!'
Oh, quit groaning!
I don't write this stuff,
I receive it from my warped friends and pass it on to you!
