, a Frenchman
and a Russian
are viewing a painting
and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden.
"Look at their reserve, their calm," muses the Briton "They must be British
"Nonsense," the Frenchman disagrees. "They're naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French
No clothes, no shelter," the Russian points out, "they have only an apple to eat, and they're being told this is paradise
. They are Russian."
An old man was on his death
bed, and wanted to be buried with his money
. He called his priest
, his doctor
and his lawyer
to his bedside. "Here's $30,000 cash to be held by each of you. I trust you to put this in my coffin
when I die so I can take all my money with me."
At the funeral, each man put an envelope in the coffin. Riding away in a limousine, the priest suddenly broke into tears and confessed, "I only put $20,000 into the envelope because I needed $10,000 to repair the roof of the church."
"Well, since we're confiding in each other," said the doctor, "I only put $10,000 in the envelope because we needed a new X-ray machine for the pediatrics ward at the hospital which cost $20,000."
The lawyer was aghast. "I'm ashamed of both of you," he exclaimed. "I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, I enclosed a check for the full $30,000."
