    The local newspaper funeral notice telephone operator received a phone call. A woman on the other end asked, "How much do funeral notices cost?"

    "$5.00 per word, Ma’am," came the response.

    "Good, do you have a paper and pencil handy?"

    "Yes, Ma’am."

    "OK, write this: ‘Fred dead.’"

    "I’m sorry, Ma’am; I forgot to tell you there’s a five-word minimum."

    "Hmmph," came the reply, "You certainly did forget to tell me that." A moment of silence. "Got your pencil and paper?"

    "Yes, Ma’am."

    "OK, print this: ‘Fred dead, Cadillac for sale.’ "

    😆
