A woman called the local newspaper and asked, “How much do funeral notices cost?”

“It’s $5 per word, Ma’am,” the man on the other end of the phone said.

“Good, do you have a paper and pencil handy?”

“Yes, Ma’am.”

“OK, write this: ‘Cohen died’.”

“I’m sorry, Ma’am, I forgot to tell you there’s a five word minimum.”

“Oh,” she answered, “You certainly did forget to tell me that…” A moment of silence. “Got your pencil and paper?”

“Yes, Ma’am.”

“OK, print this: ‘Cohen died, Cadillac for sale’.”
