A family in the Southern Province of China was puzzled when the coffin of their dead grandmother arrived from the States. It was sent by one of the daughters. The dead body was so tightly squeezed inside the coffin, with no space left in it! When they opened the lid, they found a letter on top which read as follows.
I am sending Grandma’s body to you since it was her wish that she should be cremated in the compound of our ancestral home in Tung Shin. Sorry, could not come along as all of my paid leaves are consumed.
You will find inside the coffin, under Grandma’s body, 12 cans of tuna, 10 packets of Swiss chocolates, and packets of Chinatown Lap Cheong.
Please divide these among all of you. On Grandma’s feet you will find a new pair of Nike Air shoes (size 10) for Ah Boy. Also, there are 2 pairs of shoes for Ah Mei’s and Ah Lien’s sons. Hope the sizes are correct.
Grandma is wearing 6 CK T-Shirts. The large size is for Ah Bak and the others are for my nephews. Just distribute them among yourselves.
The 2 new Armani Jeans that Grandma is wearing are for the boys. The Rolex watch that Ah Bai wanted is on Grandma’s left wrist. Aunty Pei Pei, Grandma is wearing the Tiffany necklace, earrings and ring that you asked for. Please take them.
The 6 white Polo cotton socks that Grandma is wearing must be divided among my teenage cousins.
Let me know what else you need as Grandpa is also not keeping well nowadays. I can send all required things when he goes back too.
