Taking no chances

A man, his wife, and mother-in-law went on vacation to Jerusalem. While they were there, the mother-in-law passed away.The undertaker told them, "You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here in the Holy Land for $150.

"The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.The undertaker asked, "Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your mother-in-law home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you would spend only $150?"

The man replied, "Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can't take that chance."
