The Brown Suit is a humorous story about a woman whose husband has died recently.
A man died and his wife went to the funeral parlor to see her husband’s corpse. When she saw him lying in the coffin in a blue suit, she started crying. The undertaker felt sorry for her and asked if there was anything he could do for her. The woman said that, when her husband was alive, he always wore a brown suit. The undertaker had put the wrong suit on the corpse.
The undertaker apologized to the woman and said he would rectify the mistake immediately. The woman sat down on the sofa in the waiting room, while the undertaker went into the back room. A few minutes later, he came out and told her that he had finished.
When she went into the back room, she saw that her husband was laid out peacefully in the coffin, wearing his favorite brown suit.
“Now he looks just the way he did when he was alive,” she said. “But how did you change it so quickly?”
“It was no trouble,” said the undertaker. “I accidentally put your husband’s sit on another corpse, so I just switched the heads…”
