An old man with three million dollars was on his death bed and called
his Doctor, his Priest and his Lawyer to meet with him in the morning.
When they all arrived, the old man said;
"I know I'm going to die soon and I want to take my money with me.
I'm giving each of you one million dollars in cash. Just before I'm buried,
I want each of you to slip the million dollars into my coffin."
Sure enough, the old man died the next day.
After the services the Doctor, Priest and Lawyer sat down together.
The Priest started the conversation saying:
"I must confess I was taken by greed and only put 750 thousand in the coffin."
The Doctor followed with:
"I understand Father, I too was overcome with greed
and I only put 500 thousand in the coffin.",
Where upon the lawyer responded:
"I'm ashamed at both of you. How could you have not
respected the last wishes of a dying man?"
Both the Priest and the Doctor looked at him in awe until the
lawyer finished with:
"I put a check for the full million in his coffin"
