A woman goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for
her recently deceased husband is written. The editor informs her that the
fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word. She pauses, reflects and then
says,"Well then, let it read 'Fred Brown died'."
Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor tells her that there is a 7 word
minimum for all obituaries. Only a little flustered, she thinks things
over and in a few seconds says, "In that case, let it read, 'Fred Brown
died: 1983 Pick-up for sale'."
