A Sad Obituary in Scotland

A very popular man dies in Aberdeen and his old widow wishes to tell all his friends at once, so she goes to the Aberdeen Evening Gazette and says, 'I'd like tae place an obituary fur ma late husband ...'

The man at the desk says, 'OK, how much money dae ye have?'

The old woman replies, '£5' to which the man says, 'Ye won't get many words for that Mrs, but write something and we'll see if it's ok.'

So, the old woman writes something and hands it over the counter. 

The man reads 'Peter Reid, fae Peterheid is deid.' 

He feels sad at the abruptness of the statement and encourages the old woman to write a few more things, saying, 'I think we cud allow 3 or 4 more words fer yer money.'

The old woman ponders and then adds a few more words and hands the paper over the counter again.

The man then reads - 'Peter Reid, fae Peterheid is deid. Ford Escort for sale.'
