Pushes up daisies.
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:
On opening his new store, a man received a bouquet of flowers. He became dismayed on reading the enclosed card because it expressed “Deepest Sympathy.”
While puzzling over the message, his telephone rang. It was the florist, apologizing for having sent the wrong card.
“Oh, it’s alright.” said the store owner. “I’m a businessman and I understand how these things can happen.”
“But,” added the florist, “I accidentally sent your card to a funeral party.”
“Well, what did it say?” ask the store owner.
“‘Congratulations on your new location,’” was the reply.
