    Did you do it?

    DAD - Son, come in here, we need to talk.

    SON - What''s up, Dad?

    DAD - There''s a scratch down the side of the car. Did you
    do it?

    SON - I don''t believe; if I understand the definition of "scratch
    the car"; that I can say, truthfully,that I scratched
    the car.

    DAD - Well, it wasn''t there yesterday, and you drove the
    car last night, and no one else has driven it since. How
    can you explain the scratch?


    SON - Well, as I''ve said before, I have no recollection
    of scratching the car. While it is true that I did take
    the car out last night, I did not scratch it.

    DAD - But your sister, Monica, has told me she saw you
    back the car against the mailbox at the end of the driveway,
    heard a loud scraping sound, saw you get out to examine
    the car, and then drive away. So again I''ll ask you, yes
    or no, did you scratch the car?

    SON - Oh, you mean you think you have evidence to prove
    I scratched it. Well, you see, I understood you to mean
    did "I" scratch the car. I stand by my earlier
    statement, that I did not scratch the car.

    DAD - Are you trying to tell me you didn''t drive the car
    into the mailbox?

    SON - Well, you see sir, I was trying to drive the car
    into the street. I mishandled the steering of the car,
    and it resulted in direct contact with the mailbox, though
    that was clearly not my intent.

    DAD - So you are then saying that you did hit the mailbox?

    SON - No sir, that''s not my statement. I''ll refer you back
    to my original statement that I did not scratch the car.

    DAD - But the car did hit the mailbox, and the car did
    get scratched as a result of this contact?

    SON - Well, yes, I suppose you could look at it that way.

    DAD - So you lied to me when you said you did not scratch
    the car?

    SON - No. No, that''s not correct. Your question was "Did
    I scratch the car?" From a strict legal definition,
    as I understood the meaning of that sentence, I did not
    scratch the car... the mailbox did... I was merely present
    when the scratching occurred. So my answer of "No" when
    you asked "Did I scratch the car" was legally
    correct, although I did not volunteer information.

    DAD - Where in the heck did you learn to be such a liar?

    SON - From The President of the United States.
