Brown Suit

The Story

A woman came to the funeral parlor to see her husband's corpse.

"You did a good job," she said to the undertaker. "He looks just the way he always looked, except for one thing. My husband always wore a brown suit, but you have him dressed in a blue suit."

"That is no problem," said the undertaker. "We can easily change it."

We she returned later, her husband was wearing a brown suit.

"Now he looks just the way he always did," she said. "I know you went to a lot of trouble."

"It was no trouble," he said. "As it happened, there is a man here who was wearing a brown suit, and his widow felt that blue would be better. He is about your husband's size. So we gave him the blue one and gave your husband the brown one."

"Even so," she said, "changing all that clothing was a big job."

"Not really," said the undertaker. "All we did was exchange their heads."
