just a Dead Ringers!

A man who just died is delivered to the mortuary wearing an

expensive, expertly tailored black suit. The mortician asks the

deceased’s wife how she would like the body dressed. He points

out That the man does look good in the black suit he is already wearing. The

widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked

his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the

mortician a blank check and says, "I don’t care what it costs, but please

have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing."

The woman returns the next day for the viewing. To her

delight, she finds her husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle

chalk stripe; the suit fits him perfectly. She says to the mortician,

"Whatever this cost, I’m very satisfied. You did an excellent job and I’m

very grateful. How much did you spend?" To her astonishment, the

mortician presents her with the blank cheque. “There’s no charge,” he says.

"No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue

suit!" she says.

“Honestly, ma’am,” the mortician says, "it cost

nothing. You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband’s size

was brought in shortly after you left yesterday, and he was wearing

an attractive blue suit. I asked his wife if she minded him going to

his grave wearing a black suit instead, and she said it made no

difference as long as he looked nice.

So I just switched the heads."
