Married Four Times

The local news station was interviewing an
80-year-old lady because she had just gotten
married for the fourth time.
The interviewer asked her questions about her
life, about what it felt like to be marrying again
at 80, and then about her new husband's
occupation. "He's a funeral director," she
"Interesting," the newsman thought.
He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling
him a little about her first three husbands and
what they did for a living. She paused for a few
moments, needing time to reflect on all those
After a short time, a smile came to her face
and she answered proudly, explaining that she had
first married a banker when she was in her early
20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's,
and a preacher when in her 60's, and now in her
80's, a funeral director.
The interviewer looked at her, quite
astonished, and asked why she had married four men
with such diverse careers.

(wait for it)

She smiled and explained, "I married one for
the money, two for the show, three to get ready,
and four to go."
