James was returning home with his salary and was ambushed by an armed robber on a deserted street.
"Take my money, take my money!!" said James, "But do me a favour. Shoot a bullet through my cap here otherwise, my wife won't believe I was robbed."
The robber obliged. He threw James's cap into the air and shot a bullet through it.
"Let's make it look as if I ran into a gang of robbers," said James, "otherwise, my wife will call me a coward! Please shoot a number of holes through my suit."
So the robber shot a number of holes through James' suit. "
And now shoot...…"
"Sorry," interrupted the robber. "No more holes. I'm out of bullets."
"That's all I wanted to hear!" said James. "Now hand me back my money and some more for the cap and suit that you've ruined or I will beat you black and blue!"
The robber threw down the money and took to his heels.
