Weirdest wills of all time

Wills can do more than delineate how one wants to distribute assets after death.

Sometimes, they are used to settle scores or send messages.
Comedian Jack Benny’s will called for a single long-stemmed rose to be sent to his widow every day after his death.

Another will left $12 million to the deceased’s dog. That was the will of the eccentric businesswoman Leona Helmsley. The judge, however, reduced the amount to $2 million.

A story on lists a number of oddball will declarations.

One man, for example, left his fortune to the woman in his area who could deliver the most children in the decade following his death.

F. Scott Fitzgerald, the writer, revised his will to say he should have the cheapest funeral that could be arranged.
