Father’s Promise from His Three Sons

A man spoke to each of his 3 sons when he sent them to college. “I feel it’s my duty to 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 gesture of appreciation, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die.”

So it happened. His sons became a **doctor**, **a financial planner** and a **lawyer,** each successful financially. When their father died and they saw him in the coffin, they remembered his wish.

First, the **doctor** stacked 10 crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased.

Next, the **financial planner** placed $1,000 there in 20 crisp $50 bills.

Finally, it was the heartbroken **lawyer’s** turn. He slowly reached into his pocket, removed his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father’s coffin, and took the $2,000 cash.

    Sorry – didn’t work for me at all. Surprised at the lack of pay-off:

    – no apparent connection between the 3 separate professions and their later actions

    – and “heartbroken” – the *only* adjective attached to any of the 3 sons is given no relevence.

    – the distinction in payment method, clearly set-up to pay off with the lawyer… *doesn’t!*

    Because it feels as if written by an articulate native-speaker, and because – excluding the punchline – it seemed to follow all of joke-telling’s structural norms, the only reason form it’s absolute failure that I can imagine is some sort of poorly-executed troll. In any event, worth a down-vote.
