An elderly man was in the courtroom on a case of being assaulted by his wife.
He had been explaining at length to the judge and jury, the details of the attack by his wife of 40 years.
After a discussion of the events that lead up to the incident, the details of which seemed to go on forever, he finally got around to the meat of the case.
“…and then she hit me with a maple leaf”
The courtroom was in silence. Several members of the jury snickered.
Finally, the defence lawyer asked the old man, “Surely that couldn’t have caused you any serious injury?”
“Are you kidding?” the old man exclaimed. “It was the leaf from the center of our dining room table!”
