A member of the local Garda, the Irish police force, calls his local police station on the car radio.
“Hello, is that you, Sarge?” he says.
“Yes”, the Sarge’s voice comes back, “Is that you Murphy?”
“Yes it’s me, Murphy” he replied. “We have a murder case here. A woman has shot her husband for stepping on the kitchen floor that she had just mopped clean”.
“Have you arrested the woman?” the Sarge asked.
“No sir”, Murphy said.
“Why not Murphy?” he asked, surprised.
Murphy responded, “The floor’s still wet Sarge!”
