Conversation at the dinner table tonight.

Daughter: I've been to a meeting this afternoon and the police are about to mount one of their biggest security operations in the city.

Me: Why's that?

Daughter: The British Legion are coming.

Me: Poppy sellers don't normally warrant such security measures.

Wife: Have they been attacking people with pins?

Daughter: What's so funny?

To the sound of hysterical laughter from her parents (who'd both had a glass of wine)

The police get smaller and younger ,dumber and their pointy hats really do go over their ears.
