Italian Funeral Dog           Man vs. Woman  /  Back Home

Thanks to Phyllis for sending this one!

An Italian man was leaving a convenience store with his espresso when 
e noticed a most unusual Italian funeral procession approaching 
the nearby
 Cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black 
hearse about 50
 Feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse
was a solitary
 Italian man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a 
short distance back,
 were about 200 men walking single file.

The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached 
 Italian man walking the dog and said:
"I am so sorry for
 your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you,
but I've never seen a Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral is 

My wife's."   ''What happened to her?" She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her."

He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"

The Italian man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my
wife when the dog turned on her."

A very poignant and touching moment of Italian brotherhood and silence
passed between the two men..

"Can I borrow the dog?"

The man replied, "Get in line."
