Scottish Obituary


Loyal Member
South Aust.
A scottish woman went to the local newspaper office to publish the obituary for her recently deceased husband.

The obits editor informed her that there is a charge of 50 cents per word.

She paused, reflected and then said, "Aye, well then, let it read, 'Angus MacPherson died'.":rolleyes:

Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor told her that there is a six word minimum for all obituaries.

She thought it over for a while and that said, "Ach, in that case, let it read...'Angus MacPherson died. Bagpipes for sale'."
