A Most Unusual Funeral

A MAN was leaving a convenience store with his morning coffee when he
 noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby
 cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about
 50 feet behind the first one; behind the second hearse was a solitary 
man walking a dog on a leash; behind him, a short distance back, were
 about 200 men walking single file.

The man couldn’t stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the 
man walking the dog and said,
 “I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb
 you, but I’ve never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?”

“My wife’s.”

“What happened to her?”

“She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her.”

“But who is in the second hearse?”

“My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife
 when the dog turned on her.”

A very poignant and touching moment of brotherhood and silence passed
 between the two men.

“Can I borrow the dog?”

 the man asked.

“Get in line.”
