You Can't Take It With You  (# 250)

An old man was on his deathbed. He wanted badly to take his money with him. He called his priest, his doctor, and his lawyer to his bedside. He gave each $30,000 cash and said, "I trust you to put this in my coffin when I die so I can take all my money with me." At the funeral, each man put an envelope in the coffin. Riding away in a limousine, the priest suddenly broke out in tears, and confessed, "I only put $20,000 in the envelope because I needed $10,000 for a new baptistry." "Well, since we're confiding in each other," said the doctor, "I only put $10,000 in the envelope because I needed a new machine in the office which cost $20,000." The lawyer was aghast. "I'm ashamed of both of you!" he exclaimed. "I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, it held my personal check for the full $30,000."
