Patricia Schultz, in Reader's Digest
Mrs. Willencot was very frugal. When her husband died, she asked the newspaper how much it would cost for a death notice.
"Two dollars for five words."
"Can I pay for just two words?" she asked. "Willencot dead."
"No, two dollars is the minimum. You still have three words."
Mrs. Willencot thought a moment. "Cadillac for sale."
