George went on a Middle East vacation with his wife and mother-in-law. While visiting Jerusalem, George's mother-in-law died.

With death certificate in hand, George went to the American Consulate Office to make arrangements to send the body back to the States for burial.

The Consul, after hearing of the death of the mother-in-law told George that sending a body back to the States for burial is very, very expensive, and could cost as much as $10,000. The Consul continued, in most cases the person responsible for the remains normally decides to bury the body in Jerusalem, which would only cost $50 and was, after all, the Holy City.
George thinks for some time and answers, "I don't care how much it costs to send the body back; that's what I want to do."

The Consul, after hearing this, says "You must have loved your mother-in-law very much, considering the difference in price."

"No, it's not that," says George. "But I remember a case many years ago of a person buried here in Jerusalem. On the third day, he rose from the dead. I’m not taking any chances!"
