    A woman was leaving a 7-11 store with her morning coffee when she noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.

    A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50 feet behind.

    Behind the second hearse was a solitary woman walking with a pit bulldog on a leash.

    Behind her were 200 women walking single file.

    The woman couldn't stand the curiosity. She respectfully approached the woman walking the dog and said "I am so sorry for your loss, and I know this is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?"

    The woman replied, "Well, the first hearse is for my husband."

    "What happened to him?"

    The woman replied, "My dog attacked and killed him."

    She inquired further, "Well, who is in the second hearse?"

    The woman answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my husband when the dog turned on her."

    A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passes between the two women.

    "Can I borrow the dog?"

    "Get in line."
