The teacher, having a visitor in her class, tried to match the boy with the apporpriate family and so asked him his name. The boy responded "Wesley". But this didn't give the teacher the information she wanted, so she persisted. "Do you have another name?", she asked.

One fall day a man (not a bagpipe player!) is out raking the leaves in his yard. He notices a funeral procession going by. There was a hearse, followed by another hearse, followed by a man walking slowly with his dog, followed by about 200 men walking in single file. With respect, he removes his cap and approaches the man with the dog and asks, "Who is in the hearse?" The man answers, "My wife. My dog bit her and she died." "Oh I'm so sorry to hear that" said the curious leaf raker. "Who is in the 2nd hearse?" The man answers, "My mother-in-law. My dog bit her and she also died." "Wow," said the inquisitive man. "Can I borrow your dog?" The gentleman replied: "Get in line!"
