Funeral hearse joke

A Jewish man was leaving a Staten Island convenience store with his espresso when he 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.Β  Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man walking a dog on a leash.Β  Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking in single file.


The Jewish man raised his eyebrows.Β  He’d never seen anything like it – two hearses and hundreds of men walking in line – and after a while his curiosity got the better of him.


He respectfully approached the Italian man walking the dog and said, β€œI am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I’ve never seen an Italian funeral like this.Β  Whose funeral is it?”


β€œMy wife’s.”


”I see, my condolences.Β  What happened to her?”


β€œShe yelled at me, and suddenly my dog attacked and killed her.”


He inquired further, β€œAh. And who is in the second hearse?”


β€œMy mother-in-law.Β  She came to help my wife and the dog turned on her and killed her also.”


It was a very poignant and touching moment of Jewish and Italian brotherhood.


Silence passed between the two men.


The Jewish man then asked, β€œCan I borrow the dog?”


The Italian man replied, β€œGet in line.”
