He cant think of anything to give her, so he reluctantly goes to his Mother-in-law for some advice. She decides to go to the mall to shop for some things together.
On their way over to the mall, they get into a bad car accident. They get t-boned on the side of the car where the Mother-in-law was sitting. She had to get taken to the hospital immediately while the man suffered a few bruises.
The man was in the hospital waiting room to hear the news on how his Mother-in-law will be. The doctor comes out into the waiting room.
“I have some good news and some bad news.” Says the doctor.
“What’s the bad news?” asks the man.
The doctor explains, “The bad news is that your mother-in-law suffered some severe nerve damage to her neck and spine. She is paralyzed and will have to be assisted when she eats and uses the bathroom. She also has a serious head concussion that will leave her unable to speak indefinitely.”
“Gee, doc.” says the man. “What could the good news possibly be?”
“I was just kidding! She’s dead.”
