When old Mr.O'Leary died, an elaborate wake was planned.  In preparation, 
Mrs O'Leary called the undertaker aside for a little private talk.

"Please be sure to secure his toupee to his head very securely.  No one but 
me knew he was bald," she confided, "and he could never rest in peace if 
anyone found out.  Our friends from the old country are sure to hold his 
hands and touch his head before they're through paying their last respects."

"Rest assured, Mrs O'Leary," comforted the undertaker.  "I'll fix it so that 
toupee will never come off."

Sure enough, the day of the wake the old timers were giving the corpse quite 
a going-over, but the toupee stayed firmly in place.  At the end of the day, 
a delighted Mrs, O'Leary offered the undertaker an extra thousand bucks for 
handling the matter so professionally.

"Oh, I couldn't possibly accept your money," protested the undertaker, 
"What's a few nails?"
