An Old Lawyer
Posted by Abdul Wahid on May 11, 1998 at 08:55:00:

A stingy old lawyer who had been diagnosed with a
terminal illness was determined to prove wrong
the saying, "You can't take it with you." After
much thought and consideration, the old
ambulance-chaser finally figured out how to take
at least some of his money with him when he died.

He instructed his wife to go to the bank and
withdraw enough money to fill two pillow cases.
He then directed her to take the bags of money to
the attic and leave them directly above his bed.
His plan was that when he passed away, he would
reach out and grab the bags on his way to heaven.

Several weeks after the funeral, the deceased
lawyer's wife had gone up in the attic to clean.
Coming upon the two forgotten pillow cases
stuffed with cash she exclaimed, "Oh, that darned
old fool, I knew he should have had me put the
money in the basement."
