The day after her husband disappeared in a kayaking accident, an Anchorage woman answered her door to find two grim-faced Alaska State Troopers.
“We’re sorry Mrs. Wilkens, but we have some information about your husband,” said one trooper…
“Tell me! Did you find him?” Mrs. Wilkens asked.
The troopers looked at each other.
One said, “We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news. Which do you want to hear first?”
Fearing the worst, an ashen Mrs. Wilkens said, “Give me the bad news first.”
The trooper said, “I’m sorry to tell you, Ma’am, but this morning we found your husband’s body in Kachemak Bay.”
“Oh my God!” exclaimed Mrs. Wilkens. Swallowing hard, she asked, “What’s the good news?”
The trooper continued, “When we pulled him up, he had 8 twenty-five pound king crabs and 4 good-size Dungeness crabs clinging to him and we feel you are entitled to a share in the catch.”
Stunned, Mrs. Wilkens demanded, “If that’s the good news, what’s the great news?”
The trooper said,
“We’re going to pull him up again tomorrow.”
