Day Brightener – The $40,000 Italian Funeral

Nunzio died. His will provided $40,000 for an elaborate funeral. As the last guests departed the affair, his wife Angelina turned to her oldest and dearest friend.

“Ah well, Nunzio would be pleased,” she said. “You’re right,” replied Maria, who lowered her voice and leaned in close. “So go on, how much did this really cost?” “All of it,” said Angelina. “Forty thousand.”

“Aw No!” Maria exclaimed, “I mean, it was very grand, but $40,000?!!!”

Angelina answered, “The funeral was $6,500. I donated 500 to the church. The whiskey, wine and snacks were another $500. The rest went for the Memorial Stone.”

Maria computed quickly. “Mama Mia !!! For crying out loud Angelina, $32,500 for a Memorial Stone? How big is it?

(just remember this, guys….)
