A man was leaving a cafe with his morning coffee when he noticed a
most unusual funeral procession A funeral coffin was followed by a
second one about 50 feet behind the first. Behind the second coffin was a
solitary man walking with a black dog.
Behind him was a queue of 200 men walking in single line. The man
couldn't stand his curiosity.
He approached the man walking with the dog, "I am so sorry for your
loss, and I know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a
funeral like this with so many of you walking in single line. Whose
funeral is it? "
The man replied, "Well, that first coffin is for my wife. "
What happened to her? " !
The man replied, "My dog attacked and killed her. "
He inquired further, "Well, who is in the second coffin? "
The man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife
when the dog attacked and killed her also. "
A thoughtful moment of silence passes between the two men. Then the
first one asks in excitement "Can I borrow the dog? "
The man replied "Join the queue."
