    Joe, the Governor's most trusted assistant, died in his sleep one
    night. The Governor had depended on Joe for advice on every
    subject, from pending bills to wardrobe decisions. In addition,
    Joe had been his closest friend.

    So, it was understandable that the Governor didn't take kindly to
    the droves of ambitious office seekers who wanted Joe's job.
    "They don't even have the decency to wait until the man is
    buried," the Governor muttered.

    At the funeral, one eager beaver made his way to the Governor's
    side. "Governor," the man said, "is there a chance that I could
    take Joe's place?"

    "Certainly," the governor replied. "But you'd better hurry. I
    think the undertaker is almost finished."
