  • Mood:

He looks his best in blue ...

A man who just died is delivered to the mortuary wearing an  
expensive, expertly tailored black suit. The mortician asks  
the deceased's wife how she would like the body dressed. He  
points out that the man does look good in the black suit he  
is already wearing.  

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 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?"  

"There's no charge," he says.  

"No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that  
exquisite blue suit!" she says.  

"Honestly, ma'am," the mortician 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."
