The Beloved Mother in Law

A man, his wife, and his mother-in-law went on vacation to the Holy Land. While they were there, the mother-in-law passed away.

The undertaker told them, "You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here in the Holy Land for $150.00."

The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home. The undertaker asked, "Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your mother-in-law home, when it would be wonderful to have her buried here and spend only $150.00?"

The man replied, "A man died here 2,000 years ago, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can't take that chance."

Has anyone else received this silly email story?

  • That is very naughty!

    Funny, though. I had not heard it before.

    God Bless

  • It is naughty, isn't it? ... and you will only truly understand it when you have a mother-in-law someday! Enjoy singleness while you have it.

  • I don't feel guilty, kc, I guess it didn't work!

  • Another good reason to never marry.

    God Bless

  • Then again, I have been engaged.

    I can assure you that my ex-fiance's mother was an absolutley appalling woman. A hypocondriac and an Obsessive-Compulsive. Her daughter was just the same.

    Her step-father was okay, but his sentimentality was a bit irritating.

    I understand all too well.

    Every Blessing in Christ

  • Rose,
    Someday YOU will be the Mother in Law.

    I liked that one though!

    So you DO have a sense of humor! :~)

  • A friend of mine told it to me some time back. I still think it is funny.

  • Matthew,
    You can't mean it. There are nice mothers-in-law out there, I'm sure of it. Your ex-fiance's mother was a hypocondriac and an Obsessive-Compulsive. Hmmm ... no comment. ;~)

    Hi bluecollar!!
    I will be a NICE mother-in-law and I will keep my nose out of business that isn't mine, I pledge this!

    Good to see you, and you brought your own drink with you. Hope you have a good Sunday.

    I am glad you enjoyed it. I laughed out loud because ... well ... I just better not say why ... you never know what family members might read this.

  • Rose, my dad loves this story. He and my grandmother get along very well, but he sure does love to pick at her. You can bet he is going to tell her this one.

  • My dad actually told me this one and hes an atheist.
