Unable to attend his father's funeral, a son who lived far away called his brother who lived near his father and said: "Do something nice for Dad and send me the bill."
The next month, he got a bill for $200.00, which he paid. But the next month, he got another bill for $200.00, which he also paid, assuming it was some incidental expense. But when the third month yet another bill for $200.00 arrived, he finally called his brother to see what was going on.
"Well," said the brother: "You said 'do something nice for Dad,' So I did. I rented him a tuxedo!"
