The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the
blonde mortician a blank check and says, 'I don't care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.'
The woman returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe;
the suit fits him perfectly. She says to the mortician, 'Whatever this cost, I'm very satisfied. You did an excellent job and I' m very grateful.
How much did you spend?'
To her astonishment, the blonde mortician presents her with the blank check. 'There's no charge,' she says.'
No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue suit!' she says.
'Honestly, ma'am,' the blonde says, 'it cost nothing. You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband's size was brought in shortly after you left
yesterday, and he was wearing an attractive blue suit. I asked his wife if she minded him going to his grave wearing a black suit instead, and she
said it made no difference as long as he looked nice.' 'So I just switched the heads.'
BET YOU DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING!!!
