Joke: Man Demands Wife Bury Him with All His Money
A widow had a clever idea after her late husband made her promise to bury him with all his money.
Her husband was a hard worker but also a cheapskate. Because he worked hard for his money, he believed that his money only belonged to him. He loved his money more than anything, including his wife.
So, when he died, he made his wife promise to put all his money in his casket before his burial. It seemed a greedy wish, but his wife promised so, nonetheless.
He said to his wife just before he took his last breath: “Now listen, when I die I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. Because I want to take all my money to the afterlife.”
During the funeral, the deceased husband was stretched out in the casket while his wife was sitting in the back next to her best friend. Family and friends shared their fond memories of the deceased man.
After the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife cried, “Wait a minute!”
She pulled out a shoe box, came over to the casket and placed the box inside it. The undertakers then locked the casket and rolled it away.
“I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man,” her friend said.
“Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was to put that money in that casket with him,” she replied.
“You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?” her friend asked.
“I sure did,” the wife said. ‘I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.”
That sure was a smart move!
