23 Siwan 5766 * 19 June 2006: Juneteenth


Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird thing is a joke from Emily’s collection, included below. Enjoy.


A stingy old lawyer who had been diagnosed with an illness was to prove wrong the saying “You can’t take it with you.” He 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 take out his money to fill up 2 pillowcases. He then told her to take the bags of money to the attic and leave it directly over his bed. His plan: When he passed away he would reach out and grab the bags on his way to heaven.

Several weeks later after the funeral, the wife went up to the attic to clean. She came upon the 2 pillowcases of money. “Oh that damned fool,” she exclaimed. “I knew I should have put the money in the basement.”
