As a nightclub owner, I hired a pianist and a drummer to entertain my customers. After several performances, I discovered that the drummer had walked away with some of my valuables. I notified the police and he was arrested.

"What happened to the drummer you had?" he asked.

"I had him arrested," I replied.

We said good-bye and hung up.
