A small-town radio reporter was interviewing an 80-year-old because she had just been married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked about her new husband’s occupation.
“He’s a funeral director,” she said. The interviewer paused for a few moments and hesitantly asked the occupations of her three previous husbands. She explained that in her 20s, she married a banker; in her 40s, a circus ringmaster, and in her 60s, a preacher.
The astonished questioner asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.
She smiled and explained, “I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go.”
