He was a junior bank executive and he had swindled one hundred
thousand dollars from his bank -- all of which he'd lost gambling. The
bank examiners were coming the next day and when he confessed the
whole thing to his wife, she packed her bags and left him. Totally
despondent, he walked to a nearby bridge and stood at the edge of it
about to jump off and end it all.
Suddenly a voice called, "Young man, don't do that! There is no need
to end your life! I'm a witch and I can help you."
"I doubt it," he said sadly, "I've stolen one hundred thousand dollars
from the bank, for which I will probably be arrested for tomorrow, and my
wife has left me."
"Young man, witches can do anything," she said. "I'm going to perform
a witch miracle." She said, "Alakazam! the hundred thousand dollars has
been replaced and there's another one hundred thousand dollars in you
safe deposit box! Alakazam! Your wife is back home again!"
He looked at her in disbelief, "Is this all true? he asked.
"Of course," she said, "but to keep it true you must do one thing."
"Anything!" he said, "Anything!"
"You must take me to a motel and have sexual intercourse with me."
He stared at her. She was an ugly old woman dressed in rags.
Nevertheless, he agreed to her terms. He took her to a motel and
screwed her all night. In the morning, as he was getting dressed and
combing his hair in front of the mirror, she lay on the bed watching
silently. Finally, she asked, "Sonny, how old are you?"
"I'm thirty-two," he said.
"Tell me something, then," she said. "Aren't you a little too old to
believe in witches?"
