Blah, I have to live with the smell and I'm pretty sure I'm alive.

I would expect everyone to think that I'm a "nutter".

"But, but I'm not dead!"
*BLAM!* "Mistake rectified, sir."

George said: "I was flabbergasted when I saw it. "

I would have been flabbergasted as well George. I hate being flabbergasted! I think flabbergasting should be outlawed. Will someone please think of the children!!

Reminds me of some of the 'Nam wall stories. There are several men who are inscribed on the wall yet are as alive as you or I.

Except Apparent.

This guy should have tried to collect his death benefits.

"You Americans with your 'Let me tell you this' and 'Just let me say that'--Well, you're DEAD now, so SHUT UP!"

Now a dose of irony (or a misuse of irony, depending on what side of Fark you are on today), would be to have the poor bloke buy the farm the day his name is removed from the memorial.

I read that at first as "Vegan dead for 59 years..."

And was thinking, so what's wrong with a dead Vegan stinking?

Slives, I agree, my mind is warped so that does not mean much

Read about that Burma Railway sometime. They didn't get half the Japs on war-crime charges they should've.

"I can't believe it's been there all this time and no one noticed."

Well, it took him almost 60 years to notice, so what makes him think any of us would? Silly man.

In It's a Wonderful Life, George Bailey got to see what the world would be like if he'd never existed. This gentleman got to live in a world where he didn't exist for fifty-nine years...

What an opportunity!

Did he wake up and think.. geez I wonder what I did with all my death??? I remember when I was just dead..time sure flies...

The people in Middlesboro, Kentucky sure smell weird.
