Unable to attend the funeral after his Uncle Charlie died, a man who lived far away called his brother and told him, "Do something nice for Uncle Charlie and send me the bill."

Later, he got a bill for $200.00, which he paid. The next month, he got another bill for $200.00, which he also paid, figuring it was some incidental expense. When the bills for $200.00 kept arriving every month, it finally forced him to call his brother again to find out the reason.

"Well," said the other brother, "You said to do something nice for Uncle Charlie......So I rented him a tuxedo!"

Berlin, Germany : Three days after stealing a rare collection of coins, a thief in Germany took them to the bank for safekeeping and delivered them into the hands of the man he had robbed.

"I don't think the thief was expecting that," said a spokesman for police in the western city of Dortmund on Tuesday.

Soon after the thief made the deposit, a bank worker handling the coins recognized them as the set worth some 50,000 Euros ($80,000) that had been stolen from his house.

Police tracked down the 36-year-old suspect and arrested him, securing a haul of other stolen goods in the process.
