Not a gambler

An elderly couple was traveling in Jerusalem, and during their visit, the wife died.

The mortician informed the husband that with all the expenses and fees, it would cost at least $5,000 to ship his wife back to the United States for burial. However, if he wanted, he could have her buried in Jerusalem for $125.

The man thought for a moment, and then said, “Please prepare her to be shipped home.”

Puzzled, the mortician asked, “Why not bury her here and save the money?”

The man replied, “The only person I knew who was buried in Jerusalem came back to life three days later. I’m just not willing to take that chance.”
