To the letter
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:
A woman from a small southern town goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written.
The newspaper editor informs her the fee for the obituary is a dollar per word.
She pauses, reflects and then says, “Well, then, just let it read, ‘Billy Bob died.’”
Amused at the woman’s thrift, the editor says, “Sorry ma’am but there’s a seven-word minimum on all obituaries.”
A little flustered, she thinks things over and replies, “In that case, let it read: ‘Billy Bob died – red truck for sale.’”
