A PRUDENT HUSBAND

ben trovato writes:

A man and his ever-nagging wife went on holiday to Jerusalem.

While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband:

“You can have her shipped home for £55,000, or you can have her buried here in the Holy Land for just £5,000.”

The man thought for a moment and decided he would prefer to have her shipped home.

The undertaker asked: “Why would you spend £55,000 to ship your wife home when it would be wonderful to have her buried here in the Holy Land and cost you only £5,000?”

The man replied: “Long ago a man died here, was buried, and on the third day he rose from the dead. I am not prepared to take that chance.”

IN The Sufi-version of this teaching-story there are just a few words of difference -- can you spot these?

'The man replied: “Long ago a man died here, was buried, and on the third day it is said he rose from the dead. I am not prepared to take that chance.”
