A man’s mother-in-law dies

Everyone has a mother-in-law joke to tell, even if the woman has always treated you like a daughter, there'll be something that she does that drives you up the wall.

The son-in-law in the following story had a very valid concern about his mother-in-law while on holiday far away.

Harry was on holiday in the Middle East with his wife, children, and mother-in-law. During a visit to Jerusalem, his mother-in-law unexpectedly died.

With a death certificate in his hand, he started making preparations to fly his mother-in-law’s body home to Alabama for a proper burial.

The local funeral director informed Harry over the phone that this was indeed possible, but that it would cost a lot of money. In fact, flying his mother-in-law’s body home would cost $50,000.

Fifty thousand dollars was way more than Harry had to spare having already spent a considerable amount of money coming to the Middle East on vacation.

The other option, said the funeral director, was for Harry to bury his mother-in-law’s body in Jerusalem at a cost of just $100.

Harry thought long and hard about this. After weighing all his options, he finally came to a conclusion.

“I don’t care how much it costs, I want to send the body back home. It’s what I need to do.”

The funeral director was really touched and told Harry he must have loved and cared for his mother-in-law a lot.

“No, that’s not it at all,” Harry said.

“You see, I know a case from many years ago of a man who was buried in Jerusalem. On the third day, he rose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance with my mother-in-law.”
