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
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!"
