Holding the bag
Breaks the bank.
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
There was an old miser who had worked all of his life and had saved all of his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, “Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. I wanna take my money to the afterlife.”
So, he got his wife to promise him that when he died, she would put all the money in the casket with him. She agreed.
At his funeral, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, his widow said, “Wait just a minute!” She walked over to the casket and placed a shoebox inside.
The undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away.
The widow’s friend said, “I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in the casket.”
She said, “Yes, I promised him that I was going to put his money in that casket with him and I did.”
“You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?”
“I sure did,” said the widow. “I got it all together, put it into my bank account and wrote him a check.”
