The wrong color

A woman went to the  undertakers to have one last look at her dearly departed
husband.

The instant she saw  him she starts crying.

One of the undertakers strides up to provide  comfort in this somber moment. Through her tears she explains  that she is upset because her dearest Albert was wearing a black suit, and it was his dying wish to be buried  in a blue suit.

The undertaker apologizes and explains that traditionally, they always put the bodies  in a black suit, but he’d see what he could arrange. The next day she  returned to the undertakers to have one last moment with Albert  before his funeral the following day. When the undertaker pulls back  the curtain, she manages to smile through her tears as Albert is  resplendent in a smart blue suit.

She says to the  undertaker “Wonderful, wonderful, but where did you get that beautiful blue suit?”

“Well, yesterday  afternoon after you left, a man about your husband’s size was  brought in & he was wearing a blue suit. His wife explained that  she was very upset as he had always wanted to be buried in a  black suit,” the undertaker replied.

The wife smiled at  the man.

He continued, “After  that, it was simply a matter of swapping the heads.”
