A lawyer named Strange died, and his friend asked the tombstone

maker to inscribe on his tombstone, "Here lies Strange, an honest

man, and a lawyer."

The inscriber insisted that such an inscription would be confusing,

for passersby would tend to think that three men were buried under

the stone.

However he suggested an alternative: He would inscribe, "Here lies

a man who was both honest and a lawyer.

"That way, whenever anyone walked by the tombstone and read it,

they would be certain to remark: "That's Strange!"
