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." The
inquisitive man asked, "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 "Please join the queue."
