A St. Louis tradition

One of the things we learned after moving to St. Louis was that trick-or-treaters here are expected to tell you a joke when they visit. So in that spirit (so to speak)...

Two men walked out of a bar (there's a switch!) after making a night of it. They decided to take a shortcut through a cemetery on their way home. In the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise that was coming from the misty shadows.

Trembling with fear, they crept forward and they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, who was chipping away at one of the headstones.

"Good night!" one of the men said after catching his breath. "You scared us both half to death! We thought you were a ghost. What are you doing working here so late at night?"

"Those fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my name!"
