The day after his wife disappeared in a kayaking accident, an Anchorage
man answered his door to find two grim-faced Alaska State Troopers.
Mr. Wilkens, but we have some information concerning your wife," said
"Tell me! Did you find her?!" Wilkens shouted.
The troopers looked at each other. One said, "We have some bad news,
some good news, and some really great news. Which do you want to hear
Fearing the worst, an ashen Mr. Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news
The trooper said, "I'm sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found
your wife's body in Kachemak Bay."
"Oh my God!" exclaimed Wilkens. Swallowing hard, he
asked, "What's the good news?"
The trooper continued, "When we pulled her up, she had 12 twenty-five
pound King crabs and 6 good-size Dungeness crabs clinging to her."
Stunned, Mr. Wilkens demanded, "If that's the good news, what's the
great news?"The trooper said, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow."
