The Widows

July 23, 2009 | by

Three old women are sitting around, talking about their dead husbands. Mrs. Murphy says that when her husband Riley died, she put a bottle of Irish whiskey and $20 in the casket to accompany him in the afterlife.

The next widow, Mrs. Parisi, says, "That's nothing! When my husband Salvatore died, I put my famous spaghetti and meatballs and $100 in the casket for him."

Then Mrs. Steinberg chimed in: "I can see you ladies really loved your husbands. But when my Saul passed away, I put a jar of gefilte fish in his basket along with $10,000."

"$10,000!" the other ladies cried, "Are you nuts?!"

Mrs. Steinberg replied: "I loved my Saul."

"You are some wife," said the other two.

"I know. But don't worry -- I wrote him a check."
