Doug Smith is on his deathbed and knows the end is near
His nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons, are with him.
He asks for 2 witnesses to be present and a camcorder be
in place to record his last wishes, and when all is ready he
begins to speak:
My son, "Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses."
My daughter "Sybil, you take the apartments over in
the east end."
My son, "Jamie, I want you to take the offices over
in the City Centre."
"Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the
residential buildings on the banks of the river."
The nurse and witnesses are blown away, never
knowing the extent of his property holdings,
and as Doug slips away, the nurse says, "Mrs. Smith,
your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have
accumulated all this wealth".
Sarah replies, “Wealth? .... What wealth???
The arsehole had a paper round!"
