Miriam Applebaum came into the newsroom to pay for her husband Moishe’s obituary. She was told by the newsman that it was a dollar a word and he remembered Moishe who worked in the building and wasn't it too bad about him passing away.

Mrs. Applebaum thanked him for his kind words and bemoaned the fact that she only had two dollars. But she wrote out the obituary, "Moishe died."

The newsman said he thought old Moishe deserved more and he'd give her five more words.

Mrs. Applebaum thanked him and rewrote the obituary: "Moishe died. Lots of chazerai for sale."
