The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you needcyanide?"
The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband."
The pharmacist's eyes got big and he exclaimed, "I can'tgive you cyanide to kill your husband. That's against thelaw! I will lose my license! They'll throw both of us injail! All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!"
The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture ofher husband at a fancy restauant, having dinner with thepharmacist's wife.
The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, "Well now,that's different. You didn't tell me you had a prescription."
