Mourners were standing round a grave when one pulled a $20 bill out of his pocket and threw it in.
The woman standing next to him reached into her handbag, found her wallet, extracted a $20 note and threw it in the grave.
The man standing next to her pulled a $20 note out of his pocket, looked at it and said, “This has the Queen’s face on it, it would be disrespectful to bury it.”
He thenpulled a cheque book out of his jacket pocket, wrote a cheque and threw it in the grave.
