A couple walk into a very posh Rodeo Drive furrier.  "Show the lady your
finest mink!" the man exclaims.  The owner of the shop goes in back and
comes out with an absolutely gorgeous full-length coat.

As the lady breathlessly tries it on, the furrier discreetly whispers to
the man, "Ah, sir, that particular fur goes for $65,000."  "No problem!
I'll write you a check!" he states.  "Very good, sir."  says the shop owner.
"Since it's Friday afternoon already,  you may come by on Monday to pick it
up, after the check has cleared."  So the man and the woman leave.

On Monday the man returns, but the store owner is livid:  "How dare you show
your face in here?!  There wasn't a single penny in your checking account!"
"I know, but I just had to come by," grinned the man, "to thank you for the
most wonderful weekend of my life!
