A man was walking his dog along the road when he saw an unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A solitary man was walking a large dog on a leash, following 2 black hearses. Behind him were about 200 men walking in single file.
The onlooker couldn't cope with not knowing what was going on, so he respectfully approached the man walking the dog and said, 'I am so sorry for your loss, and I know it's a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this. Whose is it?'
The man replied, 'The first hearse is for my wife.'
The onlooker then asked, 'What happened to her?'
'My dog attacked and killed her,' was the reply.
'Whose is the second hearse?' was the next question.
The man answered, 'My mother-in law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her.'
A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the 2 men.
'Can I borrow the dog?'
'Get in line!'
