Default Only a Marylander Would Understand

The day after his wife disappeared in a boating accident in Ocean City, a
man answered his door to find two grim-faced Maryland State Troopers.
'We're sorry Mr. Rice, but we have some information! about your wife,'
said one trooper.
'Tell me! Did you find her?' Rice shouted.

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 Rice said, 'Give me the bad news first.
The trooper said, 'I'm sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found
your wife's body in the Assawoman Bay near the Rte 90 Bridge.
'Oh my God!' exclaimed Rice. Swallowing hard, he asked, 'What's the good
news?
The trooper continued. 'When we pulled her up she had 12 huge blue crabs
and 6 good-size blue crabs on her.'
Stunned, Mr. Rice demanded, 'If that's the good news, what's the great
news?'

The trooper said , 'We're going to pull her up again tomorrow!'

OMG. I heard that as a "Boudreaux and Thibodeaux" joke when I lived in Louisiana! "Boudreaux and Thibodeaux" jokes are the cajun version of a Polish joke, FYI.

"I found her dead."
"Dis is terrible! What da good news?"
"I got a bushel of crabs off her, I threw her back an gonna check her again tomorrah."

That's hiilarious - I was born and raised in Maryland, lived near the Chesapeake Bay, boated in the Annapolis harbor in the summers, and STILL could never eat those blue crabs - and that's exactly why! Bottom feeding scavengers - yum, yum.

You're kidding, right? The joke had nothing to do with being female....
