Obey the law

A cop was patrolling late at night in a well-known lovers' spot. He sees a

couple in a car, with the interior light brightly glowing. The cop carefully

approaches the car to get a closer look.

He sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine . He

also notices a young woman in the rear seat, knitting.

Puzzled by this surprising situation, the cop walks to the car and

gently raps on the driver's window. The young man lowers his window .

'Uh, yes, officer?'

The cop says: 'What are you doing?'

The young man says: 'Well, Officer, I'm reading a magazine.'

Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the cop says: 'And

her, what is she doing?'

The young man shrugs: 'Sir, I believe she's knitting a pullover sweater.'

Now, the cop is totally confused. A young couple. Alone, in a car, at

night in a lover's lane...and nothing sexual is happening!

The cop asks: 'What's your age, young man?'

The young man says: 'I'm 22, sir.'

The cop asks: 'And her...what's her age?'

The young man looks at his watch and replies: 'She'll be 18 in 11 minutes.'
