The $40,000 Funeral

John sadly died.

His will provided $40,000 for an elaborate funeral.

As the last guests departed the affair, his wife Sharon turned to her oldest and dearest friend. ‘Well, I’m sure John would be pleased,’ she said.

‘I’m sure you’re right,’ replied Brenda, who lowered her voice and leaned in close. ‘How much did this really cost?’

‘All of it,’ said Sharon . ‘Forty thousand.’

‘No!’ Brenda exclaimed. ‘I mean, it was very nice, but $40,000?’

Sharon answered, ‘The funeral was $6,500. I donated $500 to church. The whiskey, wine and snacks were another $500. The rest went for the Memorial Stone.’

Brenda computed quickly. ‘$32,500 for a Memorial Stone?

How big actually is it then?’

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
