Jokes I Like to Tell

Once there were three friends, a priest, a doctor, and a lawyer. As it happened, they had met through a mutual parishioner, patient, and client, respectively. He was an elderly rich man, and he was a member of the priest’s parish, he had been a patient of the doctor for many years, and the lawyer had been his attorney, also for many years.

The three had met at some social event at this elderly man’s country club, and the three had hit it off, so much so that they began meeting monthly for lunch on their own.

As time passed, the elderly man—did I mention how rich he was?—began to see that his time was up, his end was approaching. He knew how close the three had become, and so he summoned them all to his beside, which was to become his deathbed within just a few days. He told them all, in a quavering voice, that he had just one request to make of them all, and he would appreciate it if they would be kind enough to indulge him.

He was going to have an open casket funeral ceremony, and he gave a bag to the priest, the doctor, and the lawyer. He said that when they came by the casket to pay their last respects, his one request was that they each place that bag in the casket, down by his feet. He had already cleared that with the funeral director, and so no one would interfere. Of course, all three promised that they would.

The difficulties began when they all got home and, overcome with curiosity, opened the bag to find out what was in it. To their dismay, the three bags each contained one hundred thousand dollars in cash.

At their first lunch meeting after the funeral, the priest was the first one to break the ice. He said, “I am assuming that your bags contained what mine did. And I feel awful about it, but I think I need to tell you gents that putting that money in there seemed like a total waste, especially when the parish hall needed remodeling. But we are going to name the hall after our departed friend.” The doctor shook his head sadly, and said, “I am in the same position. Our practice had an unexpected insurance charge, and I thought that taking care of it was something our friend would have wanted. I am sure he would have.” But he didn’t sound fully convinced.

But the lawyer just stared at his friends with indignant unbelief. “I can’t believe you two,” he said. “I am really disappointed. I put in a check for the entire amount.”

Ah, Yes

Part way through I was thinking the punchline was going to be something like the lawyer put just the bag in the casket without any money in it. The old man only asked for them to place the bag in there. He didn’t say anything about what was inside :)
