People Say The Funniest Things

My wife comes from a small fishing town in Devon (England). Shortly after first meeting her I called, to find her crying. I asked her what she was upset about. She told me one of her old school friends had been killed at sea, leaving a wife and three kids. I asked her how he had died. "He was executed" she replied. "Executed?" I exclaimed "what had he done wrong?" thinking of piracy, mutiny or some other seafaring offence. She answered between sobs "He touched a live wire!"
