Addressing engaged couples on Valentine’s Day at St.Peter’s Square
Tag Archives: mother-in-law
A young man was walking along the side of a road when he noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A long black hearse was followed by another long black hearse about 50 feet back.
Behind the second hearse was a solitary man walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind the man walking the pit bull were 200 men walking single file.
The young man couldn’t stand the curiosity. He approached the man walking the dog and said, respectfully, “Sir, I know now is a bad time to disturb you but I’ve never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it? “
The man replied “Well, that first hearse is for my wife.”
The young man asked, “What happened to her?”
The man replied, “My dog bit her and she died.”
The young man 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 and bit her and she died.”
A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passes between the two men and then the young man asked, “Sir, could I borrow that dog?”
The man replied, “Get in line.”
