There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved all of his
and was a real miser when it came to his money.
Just before he died, he said to his wife, 'When I die, I want you to take
all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to
the 'after-life' with me.'
And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he
died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him.
Well, he died…. He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting
there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished
the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket,
wife said, 'Wait, just a minute!'
She had a box with her, she came over with the box and put it in the
Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and they rolled it away.
Her friend said, 'I know you weren't fool enough to put all that money in
there in the casket with your husband!'
The loyal wife replied, 'Listen, I can't go back on my word. I promised
him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him.'
'You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him !?'
'I sure did,' said the wife. 'I got all the money together, put it into my
account and wrote him a cheque. If he can cash it, he can spend it.'
