There was a man who had worked all of his life and had saved all of his
money. He was a real miser when it came to his money. He loved money
more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife,
"Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place it in the
casket with me.
I wanna take my money to the afterlife." So he got his wife to promise him
with all her heart
that when he died, she would put all the money in the casket with him.
Well, one day he died.
He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black
next to her closest friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the
undertakers got ready to close the casket, the
wife said "Wait just a minute!" She had a shoe box with her, she cameover
with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the
casket down and rolled it away. Her friend said, "I hope you weren't crazy
enough to put all that money in the casket." She said, "Yes, I promised. I'm
a good Christian, I can't lie. I
promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."
"You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket
with him?"

"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account
and I wrote him a check."

My uncle tells the following true story concerning a round of golf he played with Jack Benny, who is, as you know, notorious for being a tightwad.

Benny ended up losing $20 bucks to my uncle and reluctantly forked over the twenty dollar bill. My uncle then asked him if he would be willing to autograph it.

Without missing a beat, Benny replies, "Hold on, I'll write you a check!"
