Four brothers left home for college. They became
successful doctors
and lawyers and prospered. Some years later, they
chatted after
having dinner together. They discussed the gifts that
they were able
to give to their elderly mother who lived far away in
another city.

The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar
theater built in her

The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver her
an SL600 with
a chauffeur."

The fourth said, "Listen to this. You know how Mama
loved reading
the Scriptures. And you know, too, she can't read
anymore because
she can't see very well. I met this priest who told me
about a
parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took
twenty priests
twelve years to teach him. I had to pledge to
contribute $100,000 a
year for twenty years to the church. Let me tell
you...it was worth
it. All Mama has to do is name a chapter and verse and
the parrot
will recite it." The other brothers were impressed.

After the holidays Mama sent out her thank you notes.
She wrote:

Dear Milton, The house you built is so huge. I live in
only one
room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks
anyway. Mama

Dear Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home, I
have my groceries
delivered, so I never use the Mercedes...and the
driver you hired is
a Democrat. The thought was good. Thanks anyway. Mama

Dear Manny, You give me an expensive theater with
Dolby sound, it
could hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead,
I've lost my
hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank
you for the
gesture just the same. Mama.

Dearest Melvin, You were the only son to have the good
sense to give
a little thought to your gift. The chicken was
delicious. Thank you.

Mama's going to hell......

I think the next present momma gets will be Ecoli or possibly an accident down the stairs.
