Peaches or Peas

She had been caught shoplifting.
The judge asked her, “What did you take?”
She shouted when she answered the judge,
“A can of peaches, for goodness sake!”

“How many peaches were in the can?”
The judge asked, contemplating her fate.
“How do I know”, the woman answered,
“I think that there were probably eight.”

“Then eight days will be your sentence.
A day for each stolen peach, if you please.”
Her husband spoke up from beside her.
“Your Honor, it was a can of peas!”
