Lester and Leroy are brothers, with Lester being both older and far more successful than Leroy. Their father, Aloysius, died recently. Leroy, who worked for his dad on the farm in Alabama, phoned his brother to give him the bad news.
"I'm so sorry," said Lester, "but I'm buried in meetings and I'm presently in Japan on business. You give Dad the absolute best, and just send me the bill. I'll take care of it."
A month passed, and Lester got a bill in the mail for $100. He was quite surprised at the tiny amount, but promptly sent his poor younger brother a check. The next month, he received another bill for the same amount. He assumed at this point that his good-hearted but somewhat dense brother was trying to cut him some slack on the bill by letting him pay it in installments. He sent another check and said nothing, not wishing to hurt his brother's feelings. But this process continued for several more months and he finally felt compelled to say something about it. So he phoned his brother.
Leroy: "Hello?"
Lester: "Leroy, please don't be offended but why do I keep getting these bills each month for $100?"
Leroy: "Well, you said to get Dad the best and send you the bill, right?"
Lester: "Yes, I said that."
Leroy: "So, I rented him a tuxedo."
