An elderly lawyer was about to die. One day he told his wife he had come up with a way to take all of the money he had with him to heaven.
He told his wife to put all of his money in the attic so when he died he could grab it on the way up.
A couple of weeks after he died his wife was cleaning out the attic and saw that the money bags were still there.
"That old fool," she chuckled. "I told him that we should have put the money in the basement!"
