On opening his new store, a man received a bouquet of flowers.  He became dismayed after reading the enclosed card that expressed “Deepest sympathy”.  While he was puzzling over the message, his phone rang.  It was the florist, apologizing for having sent the wrong card.

“Oh, it’s Okay!” said the storekeeper.  “I’m a businessman – I understand how these things can happen.”

“But,” the florist added.  “I accidentally sent your card to a funeral.”

“Well, what’d it say?”

“Congratulations on your new location,” was the reply.
