The Funeral


One fall day, Joe was out raking leaves when he noticed a hearse slowly drive by. Following the first hearse was a second hearse, which was followed by a man walking solemnly along, followed by a dog, and then about 200 men walking in single file.

Intrigued, Joe went up to the man following the second hearse and asked him who was in the first hearse.

"My wife," the man replied.

"I'm sorry," said Joe. "What happened to her?"

"My dog bit her and she died." Joe then asked who was in the second hearse.

The man replied, "My mother-in-law. My dog bit her and she died as well."

Joe said, "Wow, can I borrow your dog?"

"Get in line," replied the man.
