A woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at work.
Her 9 year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them, and hides in the
bedroom cupboard to watch. Just after getting into bed the woman’s
husband also comes home unexpectedly. She tells her lover to hide in
the cupboard, not realising that the little boy is also in there.
After a little while the little boy says, ‘Dark in here’.
The man, who obviously got a real fright not expecting to hear anything, let alone from a little boy says, ‘Yes, it is.’
Boy – ‘I have a football.’
Man – ‘That’s nice.’
Boy – ‘Want to buy it?’
Man – ‘No, thanks.’
Boy – ‘My dad’s outside.’
Man – ‘OK, how much?’
Boy – ‘£250’
In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the cupboard together.
Boy – ‘Dark in here.’
Man – ‘Yes, it is.’
Boy – ‘I have football boots.’
The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, ‘OK How much this time?’
Boy – ‘£750’
Man – ‘Sold.’
A few days later, the boys’ father says to the boy, ‘Grab your boots and football, let’s go outside and have a game of soccer.
The boy says, ‘I can’t, I sold my ball and boots.’
The father asks, ‘How much did you sell them for and to who?’
The boy says, ‘To a friend of mine for a £1,000.’
The father says, ‘That’s a terrible thing to do, overcharging your
friend like that. That’s four times what they cost when they were new.
I’m going to take
you to church and make you confess your terrible sin.’
They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confessional booth and he closes the door.
The boy says, ‘Dark in here’.
The priest says, ‘Don’t start that again you little sod, you’re in my cupboard now’.
