    A man was leaving a coffee shop with his morning coffee in hand, when
    he noticed a most unusual funeral procession advancing along the street.

    First came a coffin inside a long black hearse. Then, from about 10
    meters behind, it was followed by a second long black hearse carrying
    another coffin. Behind the second hearse was a solitary man walking with
    a dog on a leash.

    Behind him, a short distance back, were about 100 men walking single
    file.

    The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the
    man walking the dog and said, 'I am so sorry for your loss, and I
    know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a
    funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?'

    'My wife's.'

    'What happened to her?'

    The man replied, 'My dog attacked and killed her.'

    He inquired further, 'But, who is in the second hearse?'

    The man answered, 'My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my
    wife when the dog turned on her.'





    A thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two men.





    'Can I borrow the dog?'




    'Get in line.'
