Let the dead bury the dead… (From Laughing Matters)
A man, his wife and his mother-in-law went on vacation to the Holy Land.
While they were there, the mother-in-law passed away.
The undertaker told them, “You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here in the Holy Land for $150.00.”
The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.
The undertaker asked, “Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your mother-in-law home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and spend only $150.00?”
The man replied, “A man died here 2000 years ago, was buried here and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance.”

Peyton and Eli Manning’s father, Archie, was also an NFL quarterback. He played for the New Orleans Saints from 1971-1982, and then briefly for the Houston Oilers and Minnesota Vikings before his retirement. In 1972 he led the league in pass attempts and completions and led the National Football Conference in passing yards, though the team’s record was only 2–11–1. He was also selected for the Pro Bowl in 1978 and 1979.
