From Jack N:

A kleptomaniac woman had been caught shoplifting in a supermarket and
had to appear in court, taking along her long-suffering husband for
marital support.

The prosecution proved that the theft had taken place so the judge told
her that, considering her record, he was forced to impose a jail term.

"This time you stole a can of tomatoes. There were six tomatoes in the
can. Do you agree?"

The woman agreed.

"Then I sentence you to six nights in jail."

The husband jumped to his feet, addressing the judge, "Your honor, may I
approach the bench?"

"Well," said his honor, "this is somewhat unusual but I will make an
exception in this case. You may approach the bench."

The husband wasted no time getting there and, leaning forward, he said
in a low voice, "She also stole a can of peas."
