Woman Coming Out of Store Witnesses an Unusual Funeral Procession

An Italian woman walked into the convenience store to buy an expresso. On her way out, she noticed an unusual funeral procession, which piqued her curiosity.

Leading the procession was a group escorting a black hearse. This was followed by another group escorting a second black hearse, about 50 feet behind the first.

Next in line was a solitary Italian woman walking a dog on a leash, with a somber expression hidden underneath her massive sunshade.

Following closely behind the woman was a group of about 200 women walking in a single file. All of them were quietly walking towards a nearby cemetery.

As her curiosity spiked, the woman approached the Italian woman walking a dog and said, “I’m so sorry for your loss. And this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I’ve never seen an Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral is this?”

The second woman casually replied, “My husband’s.” The answer barely satisfied the woman’s curiosity, so she asked again, hoping to uncover more details:

“What happened to him?”

The grieving woman replied, “He yelled at me, and my dog attacked and killed him.” The woman took a sip of her expresso as if deep in thought. Then she threw another question weighing on her mind, saying: “But who is in the second hearse?”

Without batting an eyelid, the Italian woman answered, “My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my husband when the dog turned on her.” The curious woman nodded in apprehension as the whole situation finally made sense.

A feeling of sisterhood overcame the two Italian women as they stared at each other, exchanging unspoken words of understanding. After a while, the first woman asked, “Can I borrow the dog?”

To that, the woman replied: “Fall in line.”


One day, a little girl asked her mom if she could walk the dog. The mom considered carefully before replying, “No. She is on heat.”

The girl did not understand her mom’s explanation, so she asked again, “What does that mean?”

Reluctant to explain the term in detail to her daughter, the woman opted for the easy way out, saying: “Go and ask your father. He’s in the garage.”

The girl went off to the garage and found her dad wiping down some automobile parts. She approached him with a frown and said, “Mommy won’t let me walk the dog because she is on heat. What does that mean?”

The man was even more reluctant to discuss the issue. To escape the question, the dad took his rag and soaked it in a gallon of gasoline. He then took the wet rag and wiped the dog’s rear end to mask the scent.

Satisfied with his solution, the man turned to his daughter with a smile and said, “You can walk the dog now. But keep a tight hold on the leash, and only go around the block once.”

The little girl thanked her dad and skidded away happily with the dog. Minutes later, she returned without the canine, to her dad’s surprise.

The man asked his daughter about the dog, to which she replied, “She ran out of petrol halfway around the block. But don’t worry, another dog is giving her a push home.”
