An old man and woman were married for years and years even though they hated each other. When they had an argument, screams and yelling could be heard deep into the night. Repeatedly a threat was heard from the old man against his wife. “When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave to come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”
The old man died abruptly under strange circumstances and the funeral had a closed casket. After the burial, the wife went straight to the local bar, met up with some neighbors, and began to party like there was no tomorrow.
The gaiety of her actions were becoming extreme when her neighbors approached her and asked, “Aren’t you afraid of the way you’re behaving? Your husband is probably just as powerful in death as he was in life. Didn’t he threaten to dig his way up out of the grave to come back and haunt you for the rest of your life?”
With a self-satisfied smile on her face, the widow put her drink down and responded, “Let the old guy dig. I had him buried upside down.”
