A favourite joke

Mr Goldberg died, so Mrs Goldberg went into town to put his obituary in the Jewish Chronicle. Mr Goldberg was a popular member of the local community and his widow believed that people needed to be told of his passing.

At the Jewish Chronicle offices, she went up to the desk and handed over a slip of paper. The clerk took the slip from her trembling hands and read “Goldberg Dead”.

“Oh Mrs Goldberg”, said the clerk, “you get up to 5 words for the basic obituary, is there anything you would like to add?”

Mrs Goldberg thought, took up her pen and added a few words and departed.

The paper was published and the obituary read:

“Goldberg dead, Volvo for sale.”

    As Robin Williams, in his cameo as a Russian obstetrician in the film ‘Seven Months’, says to Julianne Moore –

    “Now I want to have a look at your Volvo!”

    The funniest line in that film.
