Happy April Fools Day 2010!

Mrs. Jones, the 5th grade teacher, posed the following problem to one of her arithmetic classes:Teacher-interrupted

"A wealthy man dies and leaves ten million dollars. One-sixth is to go to his wife, one-fifth is to go to his son, one-fourth to his butler, and the rest to charity. Now, what does each get?"

After a very long silence in the classroom, Little Johnny raised his hand.

The teacher called on Little Johnny for his answer.

With complete sincerity in his voice, Little Johnny answered, "A lawyer!"

My next probate litigation case

When Dan found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly
father died, he decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with. So, one evening he
went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever

Her natural beauty took his breath away. 'I may look like just an
ordinary man,' he said as he walked up to her, 'but in just a few months, my
father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars.'

Impressed, the woman went home with him that evening and, three days
later, she became his stepmother.

Women are so much better at estate planning than men.

Happy April Fools Day!
