ElderlyJokes A Rich Old Man Dies And His Three Sons Inherit His Estate. This Is Truly Hilarious. 28.1k Views A rich old man dies and his three sons inherit his estate One’s a doctor, one’s a lawyer, and one’s a priest. His dying request to the three of them is that to show their gratitude for all the money he’s leaving them, he wants each to take out $10,000 and put it in his coffin. The day of the funeral comes, and each of the sons dutifully puts a paper bag in the old man’s casket. They meet up for a drink later. The priest shamefacedly confesses: “I couldn’t sleep a wink last night, thinking of all the good our church could do with $10,000. Finally, I decided to just put some wadded-up newspaper in there. Surely dad would understand!” The doctor sighs in relief. “I’m so glad you said that! I couldn’t stop thinking about the life-saving equipment our hospital could buy for $10,000, so I also just put some newspaper in the bag. He’ll never know the difference.” The lawyer wipes his mouth and frowns. “I’m ashamed of you both. Really, I can’t believe you guys! It was dad’s last request!” “So, you actually put the money in?” “Of course! My bag contained my personal check for $10,000!” See more Previous joke A Man Was Working At The Post Office.
