"Please, what is going on here?" she asked.
The Widow responded: "In the first hearse is the body of my husband. He was attacked by a dog and killed.
In the second hearse is the body of my mother-in-law, who was on the scene and tried to protect her son, of course, but the dog turned on her and killed her as well."
The woman thought about this for a moment and then asked "May I please borrow your dog?"
The Widow replied: "Get in line."
