The Lie Detector


Gatiep was a salesman’s delight when it came to any kind of unusual gimmicks.  His wife Maraai had long ago given up trying to get him to change.  One day Gatiep came home with another one of his unusual purchases. It was a robot that Gatiep claimed was actually a lie detector.

It was about 5:30 that afternoon when Gatiepie, their 11 year old son, returned home from school. Gatiepie was over 2 hours late.

‘Where have you been?  Why are you over 2 hours late getting home from school?’ asked Gatiep.

‘Several of us went to the library to work on an extra credit project,’ said Gatiepie.

The robot then walked around the table and slapped Gatiepie, knocking him completely out of his chair.

‘Son,’ said Gatiep, ‘this robot is a lie detector, now tell us where youreally were after school.’

‘We went to Boebie’s house and watched a movie.’ said Gatiepie.

‘What did you watch?’ asked Maraai.

The Ten Commandments.’ answered Gatiepie.

The robot went around to Gatiepie and once again slapped him, knocking him off his chair once more.

With his lip quivering, Gatiepie got up, sat down and said, ‘I am sorry I lied.  We really watched a tape called “The Sex Queen.”

‘I am ashamed of you son,’ said Gatiep. ‘When I was your age, I never lied to my parents.’

The robot then walked around to Gatiep and delivered a whack that nearly  knocked him senseless.

Maraai doubled over in laughter, almost in tears and said, ‘Boy, did you ever ask for that one!  You can’t be too mad with Gatiepie.  After all, he is your son!’

With that the robot immediately walked around to Maraai and slapped her unconscious!!
