Another terrible Joke


Hall of Famer
S W France
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."

He inquired further, "But 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."

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

"Can I borrow the dog?"

The man replied, "Get in line."

My reaction in the form of a one act play.

*the scene opens with a man sitting all alone on a couch reading from a photography forum on his laptop. He laughs out loud. So loud in fact, that he frightens his dogs. Then realizing how strange his reaction must seem to his furry friends he then tells the joke to his dogs. They begin rolling on the floor with laughter. He grabs their leashes and rewards their impeccable senses of humor with a chilly and brisk November walk.*
