Flo’s husband dies and because he was such a popular fella, she decides to put an announcement in the local newspaper.

However, not having a lot of money, she tells the paper she wants to keep it as short as possible.

“Just put ‘Ben Potts dead’,” Flo says.

“Actually Madam, you can have up to six words for the same price,” the newspaper tells her. “Is there anything you would like to add?”

Flo thinks for a few moments and then says, “Yes, okay. Can you add ‘Ferret for sale’?”
