Obit:

January 8, 2018

*** Boudreaux died. So Marie went to the local paper to put a notice in the obituaries. The gentleman at the counter, after offering his condolences, asked Marie what he would like to say about Boudreaux. Marie replied, “You just put ‘Boudreaux died.” The gentleman, somewhat perplexed, said, “That’s it? Just ‘Boudreaux died’? Surely, there must be something more you’d like to say about Boudreaux. If it’s money you’re concerned about, the first five words are free. We must say something more.” So Marie pondered for a few minutes and finally said, “OK. You put, ‘Boudreaux died. Boat for sale.’”
