Lawyer is honest

Lawyer is the most 'honest'

A DYING man gathered his lawyer, doctor and priest at his bedside and handed each of them an envelope containing $25,000.

He made them each promise that after his death and during his funeral, they would place the three envelopes in his coffin. He told them he wanted to have enough money to enjoy the afterlife.

The man died a week later. The lawyer, doctor and priest each placed an envelope in the coffin.

Coincidentally, these three men met several months later.

Feeling guilty, the priest confessed there was only $10,000 in the envelope he placed in the coffin.

He felt the money would be better spent on a mission in South America.

Moved by the priest's honesty, the doctor also admitted he gave away some money to a medical charity. The envelope he placed in the coffin, contained only $8,000.

Seething with self-righteous outrage, the lawyer was deeply disappointed with the two men.

He said: 'I am the only one who kept his promise to our dying friend.

'The envelope I placed in the coffin contained the full amount. Indeed, it was a personal cheque for the entire $25,000.'

Notes: If you dont get the joke, tell me on how you are going to encash the cheque then :).
