A man was leaving a cafe after eating breakfast, when he noticed an unusual funeral procession moving along the street in front of him.
A hearse carrying a coffin was followed by a second hearse which was also carrying a coffin.
Behind the second hearse, was a solitary man walking with a black dog.
Behind him was a queue of what looked like about 200 men, all walking in a single line, one after the other.
The man couldn’t became so curious until he couldn’t stand it any longer.
He approached the man who was walking with the black dog and asked him, “I am so sorry to disturb you, but I’ve never seen a funeral like this with so many of you walking in single line. Whose funeral is it?”
The man replied, “That first coffin is for my wife”.
I am so sorry”, the man replied, “What happened to her?”
“My dog attacked and killed her”, the man with the dog replied.
“Well, who is in the second coffin?”, the first man asked.
“My mother-in-law”, said the man with the dog. “She was trying to help my wife when the dog attacked and killed her also”.
A thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two men.
Then the first man asked in excitement, “Can I borrow the dog?”
The man with the dog replied, “Join the queue…”
