“A Priest, a Doctor and a Lawyer”


A Priest, a Doctor and a Lawyer.

A man wanted to literally die and take his money with him, so he trusted a third of his money to a Priest, a third to a Doctor, and a third to his Lawyer to bury him with his money when he died.


After his death, at the man’s funeral the priest whispered to the man’s dead body and placed a bag in his coffin.

The doctor then proceeded to whisper to the body, and placed a bag in there as well.

Then the lawyer went and dropped off a bag and moved on.

As the three were carpooling back from the funeral, the lawyer asked what the priest whispered.

The priest — with tears in his eyes — said that he had to confess he spent some of the money on an orphanage so that some hungry kids would not starve and that he feels bad for what he had done, but that he had no choice.

The doctor then admits that he too had to let him know that one of his patients needed surgery that he alone could not do, that he spent some of the money to save the person’s life.

The lawyer looks at them with scorn and says, how could you?

You have betrayed a man’s last and dying request!

The doctor and priest looked at the lawyer and asks, so your bag had all the money he entrusted you with?

To which the lawyer replies, damn right, I wrote the check for the full amount, not a penny less!
