Steamed Dim Sims.

Its lunchtime and Senior Constable Lucy Lavender who's been stationed at the Contention Police Station for the last two years locks her office door, wanders via the noisy and crowded reception area, out the front door onto the wet footpath and meanders toward the Contention Fish 'n' Chip shop and orders three Steamed Dim Sims for lunch.

Firmly grasping the brown paper bag with two Steamed Dim Sims in one hand while munching on a third with the other Lucy makes a bee-line for the police station at a brisk pace hoping not to get caught in the rain as dark clouds start rolling in. Up ahead she spots her little brother Larry Lavender walking towards her and they meet at the entrance to the police station.

After giving each other a hug and a couple of air kisses Lucy says, fancy meeting you here where are you off to?.
I'm trying to work out what to have for lunch, what are you having?, asks Larry.
Steamed Dim Sims.
Yummy, tell ya what, if i can guess how many you have left can i have one?.
Go on take a wild guess and if you guess correctly you can have both of 'em.

Eyeing off the brown paper bag for what seemed an eternity Larry finally says, with a big smile on his freckled face, my guess is there are four left, did i guess correctly?.
No, like i said before you can have both of 'em if you guessed correctly but you didn't, opening the brown paper bag and showing Larry the two Steamed Dim Sims. Shaking her head Lucy mounts the steps leading into the police station and disappears into the bowls of the dingy cavernous police station.

Hi Windsmoke,
Oh yes Lucy was mean, but still it may teach Larry to listen to what people are saying next time;
"if you guess correctly you can have both of 'em." LOL.

Guess that explains why Lucy is in the police force and Larry isn't.

And what is Larry's job? Nothing involving listening or numbers I hope. Or observation either come to think of it. A bag with four dim sims in it would look significantly larger.

Funny joke but it should have started..'Two Australian politicians were...'
But then it wouldn't have been a funny story, just a true story.

Personally, I think Lucy was asking a trick question and trying to set her brother up. When he looks at her, he struggles to see the person behind the uniform, but with good reason: He answered her trick question with a trick answer, and still lost. Poor bugga.

OK, so the brother wasn't very bright. She did her best for him, though.

G' Day RIVER & DAVE: He's definitely not the sharpest knife in the draw :-).

G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: He's probably on centrelink benefits :-).

G' Day TEMPO: Sometimes a true story can be boring :-).

G' Day FRUIT CAKE: Reminds me sibling rivalry :-).
