Joke of the Week!
An American man went on vacation to the Middle East with most of his family, including his mother-in-law. While they were visiting Jerusalem, the mother-in-law died. With the death certificate in hand, he went to the American Consulate Office to make arrangement to send the body back to the United States for proper burial. The Consul warned that to send a body back to the US for burial was an extremely expensive business and could cost as much as $10,000.
"In most cases," advise the Consul, "the person responsible for the remains normally decides to bury the body here. That would only cost $300."
The man gave it some careful thought before answering: "I don't mind how much it's going to cost to send the body back home; that's what I want to do."
The Consul remarked: "Considering the difference in price, you must have been extremely fond of your mother-in-law."
"No, it's not that," said the man. "You see, there was a case many years ago of a person that was buried here in Jerusalem. On the third day he rose from the dead. I just can't take that chance!"
