Traditionally when posting gets thin around here I steal a joke from The Motley Fool, edit it a bit, and slap it up on PooterGeek so that everyone can complain about how unfunny it is in the comments until things get back to normal. I bet you can guess what’s coming next.
An old lady is very upset as her husband has just passed away.
She goes to the undertakers to have one last look at her dearly departed. The instant she sees him she starts crying. One of the undertakers strides up to offer some comforting words.
Through her tears she explains that she is upset because her dearest was wearing a black suit, and it was his dying wish to be buried in a blue suit.
The undertaker apologises and explains that traditionally, they always dress the deceased in black, but he’ll see what he can do.
The next day she comes back to take one last look before the funeral the following day.
When the undertaker pulls back the curtain, she manages to smile through her tears at the smart, tailored blue suit her dead husband is now wearing. She says to the undertaker, “Wonderful, wonderful, but where did you get that beautiful outfit?”
“Well, yesterday afternoon after you left, a man about your husband’s size was brought in. He was dressed in blue Savile Row. His wife explained that she was very upset as she wanted him to be buried in a black suit,” the undertaker replies.
The recently widowed woman smiles at this sad but lovely coincidence.
He continues, “After that, it was simply a matter of swapping the heads.”
