Husband:

Coming…. 
 
Man:
Good afternoon Mr. Thomas. I’m from your credit card company. We suspect several unauthorized transactions on your card.
 
Husband:
Really? My credit card company?
 
Man:
Yes, and we care about your security, so we make house calls. Good news is, you give me your social security number and we’ll take care of you.
 
Husband:
Is that all you need? 
 
Uh… oh, not quite – we also need your PIN number. I forgot.
 
Husband:
What’s that on your back?
Nothing.
 
Husband:
Oh, I get it… You’re fishing for my personal information right?
 
Man:
No.
 
Husband:
So you can steal my identity, right?
 
Man:
No!
 
Husband:
Then why do you have a fin sticking out of your back?! Honey, get my tackle box and rod!
