As the eighty-year-old Irishman seemed to doze off in a blissful sleep, the children started to discuss the plans for his funeral.

One of his children wanted to spend a thousand Euros for a coffin.

The second child thought that a plain wooden box would do, and the third was even ready to dump the remains into a paper sack.

All of Murphy’s children agreed that there was no reason to spend much money, as their father would never know the difference.

Just then, Murphy stirred.

Having heard every word, he thought it was time to set the record straight.

“Children”, he said, “I have never told you this and never wanted to, but I can’t go to my final resting place with this burden. My darling children, your mother and I were never married”.

His oldest son was aghast. “You mean we’re…..”

Murphy said, “Aye. And cheap ones at that!”
