Three Ballymena men were left £1,000 each by an old friend. The only condition
was that they had to throw a tenner each into the grave as the coffin was being
The first man threw in a tenner that he'd borrowed from the wife of the dead man.
The second man threw in a tenner that he'd borrowed from the third man. The third
man fished out the two tenners, wrote out a cheque for £30, and threw that in.
Three days later he got a statement from his bank telling him that the cheque
had been cashed.
The undertaker was a Ballymena man as well.
