A Cheap Obituary

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."
