Hell vs gaol

Jacky Bindieye was arrested and charged with cattle stealing.

At the trial the judge asked him what would happen if he told a lie.

“Well, boss,” said Jacky, “I think I go to hell.”

“And,” continued the judge, “what happens if you tell the truth?”

“Well, boss,” replied Jacky, “in that case I reckon I’ll go to gaol.”
