A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem. While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband "You can have her shipped home for $5,000 or bury her here for $150." The husband thought about it for a moment, then said he'd ship her home. The undertaker asked why he would spend the $5,000 rather than take the $150 deal.
The husband said, "Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he arose from the dead. I just can't take that chance."
