A doctor, a priest and a lawyer...

Just for laughs!


A wealthy old man summons to his bedside his doctor, his priest, and his lawyer. “They say you can’t take it with you, but I’d like to have something with me, just in case. So I am giving each of you an envelope containing $100,000 in cash and I would be grateful if at my funeral you would put the envelopes in my coffin.” They each agree to carry out his wish.

At the old man’s funeral, each of the three advisors slips something into the coffin. As the three are walking away together, the doctor turns to the other two and says, “Friends, I have a confession to make. At the hospital we are desperate for a CAT SCAN machine, so I took $20,000 of our friend’s money for a new machine and put the rest in the coffin as he asked.”

The priest admits, “I, too, have a confession to make. I took $50,000 for our homeless fund and put the rest in the coffin as our friend requested.”

The lawyer righteously replies, “I am astonished that you would treat so casually our undertaking to our friend. I want you to know that I placed in his coffin my personal check for the full $100,000.”
