    A man who just died is delivered to the mortuary wearing an expensive,
    expertly tailored black suit. The mortician asks the deceased’s wife how she
    would like the body dressed. He points out that the man does look good in
    the black suit he is already wearing.

    The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best
    in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the mortician a
    blank check and says, I don’t care what it costs, but please have my husband
    in a blue suit for the viewing.

    The woman returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her
    husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe; the suit
    fits him perfectly.

    She says to the mortician, “Whatever this cost, I’m very satisfied.”
    You did an excellent job and I’m very grateful. How much did you

    To her astonishment, the mortician presents her with the blank check.
    There’s no charge, he says. ‘No, really, I must compensate you for the cost
    of that exquisite blue suit! she says.

    Honestly, ma’am, the mortician says, it cost nothing.

    You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband’s size was brought in
    shortly after you left yesterday, and he was wearing an attractive blue
    suit. I asked his wife if she minded him going to his grave wearing a black
    suit instead, and she said it made no difference as long as he looked nice.

    So I just switched the heads.
