Mrs Cohen

Recommended Posts

Mrs Cohen rings up the Jewish Chronicle. She says to woman;

"Mrs Cohen here. My husband has died and I want to place an announcement."

Telephonist at other end asks, "Go on, dictate it."

Mrs Cohen replies, "Put 'Cohen is dead.'"

Telephonist pauses then says, "That's a bit short, isn't it?"

Mrs Cohen replies, "Ah yes, but I don't want to spend more than I have to."

The telephonist laughed and said, "Mrs Cohen, our minimum price covers six words so you might as well make it a bit longer."

Mrs Cohen paused and thought then replied, "Ok, change it to 'Cohen is dead. Volvo for sale.'"
