Mrs. Reston

Mona Reston was on trial for the murder of her third hus-band. The district attorney asked her, “What happened to your first husband?”

“He died of mushroom poisoning,” said Mrs. Reston.

“How about your second husband?” asked the D.A.

“He died of mushroom poisoning, too,” replied Mrs. Reston.

“Well,” asked the D.A., “what about your third husband?”

Mrs. Reston replied, “He died of a fractured skull.”

The prosecutor asked, “Why did that happen?”

Mrs. Reston hesitated, then answered, “He didn’t particu-larly like mushrooms.”
