Stealing the honest way

An Englishman stole three buns from a bakery and said to his friend, “That took skill and guile. The owner doesn’t know a thing about it.”

His Irish friend said, “That’s simple thievery. I’ll do the same but honestly and in front of the owners eyes.” He called over the owner and said, “I’d like to show you a magic trick with three buns.”

The owner was intrigued- who wouldn’t be?- and said, “Carry on.”

The Irishman then ate a bun in front of the owner. He asked for two more and ate them as well. He said, “Well that’s it.”

The owner said, “But what’s the trick?”

Look in the Englishman’s pocket.”
