A popular local dignitary had died and the church was full to

overflowing with people who had come to pay their last

respects. At the front of the church stood the coffin and just

as the funeral service was about to start, an escaped lunatic

jumped on top of it and started pulling at the clasp.

Immediately, one of the family hurried over and urged him

to get down. But he refused to move.

“Look, I’ll give you £20 to get off,” said the man desperately

but still the lunatic refused to move. Another member of the

family came over and offered him £40. The lunatic shook his

head. A third member came over and shouted, “Here, you

can have £100.”

“No,” said the lunatic confidently. “I’ll open the box.”
