Once upon a time, there was a lawyer with the last name of "Strange." He was very successful, and later in life he became a philanthropist in his small community. Everyone in the town loved him.

He had a habit of telling people, "When I die, I want you to leave my name off the tombstone. I want the inscription to read 'Here lies a lawyer and an honest man.' When people see my headstone, they will read that phrase and think to themselves, 'That's Strange!'"

Many years went by, and when Mr. Strange died, the people of the town remembered his wish, and they buried him in a grave with a tombstone that read only "Here lies a lawyer and an honest man."

One day a young boy was running through the cemetery. It was dusk. Because it was difficult to see, the boy tripped over the tombstone on Mr. Strange's grave. Looking up to see what he had tripped over, the boy read the inscription, "Here lies a lawyer and an honest man."

The boy scratched his head and said, "Hmmm, I wonder why they put them both in the save grave."
