An old man who spent his entire life pinching pennies and clinging to all of his money was on his death bed. He was friendless for his nature, and was surrounded by his priest, doctor, and lawyer while he was taking his last breath.
Just before he died he told them, "I know most people say that you cannot bring money with you after you die, but I want you to all throw this into my grave just as they are about to bury me." With this being said he handed them all envelopes with $50,000 in them.
After his funeral the three were discussing the money. The doctor said, "I have to confess something. I have really been wanting a vacation so I only threw $40,000 in."
The priest followed, "I must also confess. We are renovating the church so I only threw in $25,000. I feel terrible."
The lawyer lashed out at them and said, "You guys are terrible! Not only did I throw in the $50,000 he gave me, but I added my own $10,000."
The doctor replied, "Why in the world would you give that greedy man your money?"
The lawyer replied, "He was a good man so I wrote him a check for the full amount."
