My friend Skip was given an application for life insurance and found it
difficult to fill out the forms honestly.
The salesman asked what the trouble was, and Skip said that he was
uncomfortable with the question about the cause of death of his father.
Of course the insurance agent wanted to know why. After some embarrassment,
Skip explained that his father had been convicted of murder 50 years ago in
Washington State and hanged.
The salesman pondered for a moment, then came up with a solution. “Just
write: ‘My father was taking part in a public function when the platform
suddenly gave way.'”
