The Wife's Economic Obituary

Submitted by Inchcock

Monday, 14 May 2012

A Scottish woman goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written.

The obituary editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50p a word.

She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well, then, let it
read, "Mark Cameron has died"

Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor says, "Sorry ma'am,
there is a 7 word minimum on all obituaries."

Only a little flustered, she thinks things over and in a few
seconds says:

"In that case, let it read, 'Mark Cameron died - 2012, Fishing-tackle for sale!"
