The <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:State w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Maryland</st1:place></st1:State> Wife

One has to be a Marylander to fully appreciate this... <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

The day after his wife disappeared in a boating accident, an Ocean City man answered his door to find two grim-faced <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Maryland</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">State </st1:PlaceType></st1:place>Troopers.

"We're sorry Mr. Rice, but we have some information about your wife," said one trooper.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

"Tell me! Did you find her?" Rice shouted.

<o:p></o:p>

"We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news.

Which do you want to hear first?"

Fearing the worst, an ashen Rice said, "Give me the bad news first." <o:p></o:p>

The trooper said, "I'm sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found your wife's body in the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Assawoman</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Bay</st1:PlaceType></st1:place> near the Rte 90 Bridge." <o:p></o:p>

"Oh my God!" exclaimed Rice. Swallowing hard, he asked, "What's the good news?"

The trooper continued. "When we pulled her up she had 12 huge blue crabs and 6 good-size blue crabs on her." <o:p></o:p>

Stunned, Mr. Rice demanded, "If that's the good news, what's the great news? <o:p></o:p>

The trooper said, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow.<o:p></o:p>
