Joke of the Day - Funeral

Joke of The Day

An old penny pincher had no friends. Just before he died, he asked his doctor, lawyer, and pastor to gather around him at his bedside.

“I have always heard that you can’t take your money with you when you die. But I want to disprove that theory,” he said. “I have $90,000 under my mattress, and when I die, just before they throw the dirt on me at my burial, I want each of you to toss in an envelope containing $30,000.”

The three each took their share of the cash, and when he died, attended the funeral and did as he had asked.

On the way back from the cemetery, the pastor said, “I must confess. I needed $10,000 for my new church, so I only threw in $20,000.”

The doctor then said, “I must confess too. I needed $20,000 for a new hospital I was opening up, so I only threw in $10,000.”

The lawyer looked at them both and shook his head. He then said,“Gentlemen, I’m surprised, shocked, and ashamed of you. I don’t see how you could dare to go against that man’s final wish. I mean, I threw in a cheque for the full amount!"
