Obedient Response to A Father’s Request

A man spoke to each of his 3 sons when he sent them to college.  “I feel it’s my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a gesture of appreciation, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die.” And so it happened.
His sons became a doctor, a financial planner and a lawyer, each successful financially. When their father died and they saw him in the coffin, they remembered his wish.
The doctor stacked 10 crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased father.
The financial planner placed $1,000 there in 20 crisp $50 bills.
Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer’s turn. He slowly reached into his pocket, removed his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father’s coffin, and took the $2,000 cash. The lawyer is now in Congress, probably from your district.

  1. While this is supposed to be joke I find it is the truth. Most in congress are lairs and thieves. If they weren’t when they were elected they soon became one. We need term limits bad, and we need to get rid of ALL currently serving with new people who can only serve 2 terms and not consecutively.

    • I agree, Fred. Getting elected is just the bottom rung on the ladder that allows them to climb higher into the Den of Thieves.
