The theatre tickets


What is a joke?

A young couple got married and went away on their honeymoon. After two weeks they came back and finally put away all of the presents they received from friends and family. Since this was a new home, the process took some time.
A week later, they received in the mail two tickets for a popular show where tickets were impossible to get. They were very excited and warmed by the gesture of the person who sent this. Inside the envelope, however, was only a small piece of paper with a single line, "Guess who sent them."
The pair tried to identify the donor, but failed in the effort. They went to the theatre, and had a wonderful time. On their return home late at night, still trying to guess the identity of the unknown host, they found the house had been robbed and every article of value stolen.
And on the bare table in the dining room was a piece of paper on which was written in the same hand as on the note with the tickets:
"Now you know!"


The thief obviously knows that the couple will be away from their house for the duration of the show, so can rob their house without worrying that they'll come back.

A donor is someone who gives something. It is related to the verb donate.
