Soon after the last child is born, her husband dies.
A few weeks later she remarried, and over the following years has another 22 children with her second husband.
After the last child is born her second husband also dies.
Within a month Maria is engaged to be married for the third time.
Unfortunately, she becomes very ill and dies. At her funeral, the priest looks tenderly at Maria as she lies in her coffin, he looks up to heaven and says:
“At last they are finally together”.
A man standing next to the priest asks, “Excuse me Father, but do you mean Maria and her first husband, or Maria and her second husband?”
The priest replies “I mean her legs”.
