Tax’s For The Dead

A Brooklyn lawyer, a used car salesman and a banker were gathered by a coffin containing the body of an old friend. In his grief, one of the three said, “In my family, we have a custom of giving the dead some money, so they ll have something to pay tax’s over there.”They all agreed that this was appropriate. The banker dropped a hundred dollar bill into the casket and walked away in tears.The car salesman did the same. The lawyer looked around and seeing no one was near the coffin, he took out the bills and wrote a check for $300.
