"Good, do you have a paper and pencil handy?" 

"Yes, Ma'am." 

"OK, write this: 'Fred dead.'" 

"I'm sorry, Ma'am; I forgot to tell you there's a five-word minimum." 

"Hmmph," came the reply, "You certainly did forget to tell me that." A moment of silence. "Got your pencil and paper?" 

"Yes, Ma'am."
