A woman goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written.  The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word.  She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well then, let it read.  "Fred Brown died."

Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor tells her that there is a 7 word minimum for all obituaries.  Only a little flustered, she thinks things over and in a few seconds says, "in that case, let it read, "Fred Brown died: 1983 pickup for sale...."
