A man was walking back home when he noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.
A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50 feet behind. Behind the second hearse was a solitary man walking with a dog. Behind that were 200 men walking in a single file.
He respectfully approached the man walking with the dog and said, “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 procession like this. Whose funeral is it?”
The man replied, “Well, that first hearse is for my wife. My dog attacked and killed her.”
He inquired further, “Well, who is in the second hearse?”
The man answered, “My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her.”
After a moment of silence he asked, “Can I borrow the dog?”
The man with the dog replied,
“Get in line.”
