Todays joke is called the three sons joke because, funny enough, it involves three sons. 😉It’s about a father who tries to teach his three sons the importance of learning from life’s experiences.
A Lesson From The Three Sons Joke
A man spoke to each of his 3 sons when he sent them off to college, “I feel I must provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die.”
One of his sons became a doctor, another a lawyer and the other a financial planner. Each of his sons was very successful financially. When their father’s time had come, and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish.
First, the doctor put 10 newly printed crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased.
Then, the financial planner also put $1,000 there in 20 newly printed crisp $50 bills.
Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer’s turn. He reached into his pocket, took out his chequebook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father’s coffin, and took the $2,000 cash.
Amazing, isn’t it? I thought the financial-planner would have been the one to con his brothers, but I should have realised the lawyer would be the one to fiddle the books. Do you think the father would have been proud of his lawyer son?
