|A woman orders an obituary notice, in memory of her recently deceased husband, from the local newspaper office ...
The obituary editor tells her that the fee is 50¢ per word.
She pauses, reflects, and says, "Well then, let it read: 'James Thompson died.'"
Amused by the woman's thrift, the editor tells her that there's a seven-word minimum for all obituaries.
She thinks it over and says, "In that case, let it read: 'James Thompson died: golf clubs for sale.'"
