I got this in my email today - it's an old one, but with slightly different wording than usual...
"WE WOULD RATHER DO BUSINESS WITH 1000
AL QAEDA TERRORISTS THAN WITH A SINGLE AMERICAN"
This sign was prominently displayed in the window of a business in Philadelphia. You are probably outraged at the thought of such an inflammatory statement. One would think that anti-hate groups from all across the country would be marching on this business . . .. and that the National Guard might have to be called to keep the angry crowds back.
But, perhaps in these stressful times one might be tempted to let the proprietors simply make their statement . . We are a society which holds Freedom of Speech as perhaps our greatest liberty ...
And after all, it is just a sign.
You may ask what kind of business would dare post such a sign?
Answer: A Funeral Home (Who said morticians had no sense of humor?)
You gotta love it!!!

I know it's just a joke, but talking realistically... I have had more experience with funeral homes in the past few months than I would have preferred, and I can't imagine a funeral home ever posting any kind of joke sign "in the window." Funeral home directors are experts at being respectful and appropriate in their business.

I don't like this joke, and I don't think any funeral home would put up a sign like this.
But I did see a chuckler over the holiday weekend. On the back of a big 18wheeler, "Drive safe, heaven will wait." It was a casket company trailer.
Well, I thought it was funny.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised. In general, funeral homes/directors do their best to be extremely respectful. However, I have seen a bad joke here and there at funeral homes (if I can actually remember them, it will probably make me sound more credible ).
