A Brooklyn lawyer， a used car salesman and a banker were gathered by a coffin containing the body of an old friend. In his grief， one of the three said， “In my family， we have a custom of giving the dead some money， so they抣l have something to spend over there.”
They all agreed that this was appropriate. The banker dropped a hundred dollar bill into the casket， and the car salesman did the same. The lawyer took out the bills and wrote a check for $300.
