Joke 390

17 Apr

Thanks to Mirth and Motivation for this one.

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.  He found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, and decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his fortune.  One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.   Her natural beauty took his breath away.

“I may look like just an ordinary guy,” he said to her, “but in just a few years my father will die and I will inherit $200 million.”

Impressed, the woman asked for his business card and three days later, she became his stepmother.

    Serve him right! He’d never have been happy with such a gold-digger.

      Bump off Dad before handing out your business cards…?

        I was thinking more along the lines of being humble and not arrogantly flaunting wealth you haven’ t yet inherited, a kind of don’t count your chickens thing.

        But if you really I should bump off the old man instead then fair enough I’ll crack straight on with it.

          I’d backtrack fast here if I didn’t need the money I’m going to raise from blackmailing you.

            You’re planning to blackmail me? What is the world coming to? Now you can’t even trust someone who instructs you to kill off your own father in order to guarantee your inheritance? Then who can you trust?

            Sometimes I’m just shocked and appalled at this world.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
