A loving couple, and proud parents of two beautiful children, were headed out for a much needed night on the town. Their most-trusted babysitter was at the door at 8:30 PM, sharp. The children were already in bed, so all the babysitter really had to do was sit around and make sure everything was alright.
Later that evening, after running out of things to do, the babysitter decided to watch some TV. There was no cable in the living room, however. The parents didn't want their children watching too much garbage. The babysitter called the father on his cellphone, "Can I watch TV in your bedroom since there's cable in there?" She asked him.
"Of course." He replied, "Just keep it turned down so you don't wake the children."
"Sure thing," She said, "but one more question. Can I put a blanket over the angel statue outside your bedroom window? I feel like it's staring at me."
The father was silent for a few moments, then said, "Get the children dressed and get out of the house. I'll call the police. We don't have an angel statue."
Five minutes later, a patrol car arrived on the scene, but neither the children nor the babysitter could be found.
