Two old friends meet passing on the street one day. But one looked forlorn, and
almost on the verge of tears. His friend asked, "What had the world done to you,
my old friend?"
The sad fellow said, "Let me tell you. Three weeks ago, an uncle died and left
me forty thousand dollars."
"That's not bad."
"But you see, two weeks ago, a cousin I never even knew kicked the bucket, and
left me eighty-five thousand free and clear."
"Sounds like you should be grateful..."
"You don't understand!" he interrupted. "Last week my great-aunt passed away. I
inherited almost a quarter of a million."
Now he was really confused. "Then, how come you look so glum?"
"This week... nothing!"
