"It's dark in here, isn't it?"

A married woman is having an affair. Whenever her lover comes over,

she puts her nine-year-old son in the closet. One day the woman hears

a car in the drive way and puts her lover in the closet, as well.

Inside the closet, the little boy says, "It's dark in here, isn't it?

"Yes it is," the man replies.

"You want to buy a baseball?" the little boy asks. "No thanks," the man


"I think you do want to buy a baseball," the little extortionist

continues. "OK. How much?" the man replies after considering the

position he is in. "Twenty-five dollars," the little boy replies.

"TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS?!" the man repeats incredulously, but complies to

protect his hidden position.

The following week, the lover is visiting the woman again when she

hears a car in the drive way and, again, places her lover in the closet

with her little boy. "It's dark in here, isn't it?" the boy starts


"Yes it is," replies the man.

"Wanna buy a baseball glove?" the little boy asks.

"OK. How much?" the hiding lover responds, acknowledging his

disadvantage. "Fifty dollars," the boy replies and the transaction is


The next weekend, the little boy's father says "Hey, son. Go get your

ball and glove and we'll play some catch."

"I can't. I sold them," replies the little boy.

"How much did you get for them?" asks the father, expecting to hear

the profit in terms of lizards and candy.

"Seventy-five dollars," the little boy says.

"SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS?! That's thievery! I'm taking you to the

church right now. You must confess your sin and ask for forgiveness,"

the father explains as he hauls the child away.

At the church, the little boy goes into the confessional, draws the

curtain, sits down, and says "It's dark in here, isn't it?"

"Don't you start that shit in here now," the priest says.
