Edgar went to the bank to cash a $5,000 check for the petty cash at his business. Unfortunately he chose right after lunch to do this when he had a spectacular case of hiccups.
He approached the teller, hiccups crescendoing, and presented his check and ID, saying "I'd like *HIC* to cash *HIC* this ple*HIC*ase".
The teller, Anna, took the check and his ID, typed into her computer, then looked at Edgar sadly, shaking her head. "I'm sorry, sir" she said, "But you do not have sufficient funds to cash this check".
"What?!" Edgar asked, stunned. "That's impossible! Of course I have funds to cover it".
"And what's more, sir, there is no money left in this account at all," Anna said.
"You HAVE to be kidding me," said Edgar, quite flummoxed.
"Well, yes I am, " Anna said, counting out the cash, "and you'll notice you're not hiccuping any more."
