: A mother and son were washing dishes while the father and daughter were watching TV in the living room, Suddenly, there was the sound of breaking dishes, the complete silence.
: The girl looked at her dad and said, "it was Mum."
: "How do you known?"
: "She didn't say anything."

: Could you please explain this joke?

If the son had dropped the dish, Mum would have scolded him.
