So... he took a right turn into heaven?

We're all just lucky he died before he became a serial killer.

Boogity boogity boogity, amen.

"...contribute his building and painting expertise to the constructing of many heavenly mansions on Saturday, March 23, 2013, in Memphis."

Man no wonder he died. Must have worked himself to death doing all that in one day!

Punctuation is your friend.

Well of COURSE his middle name is Wayne.

Beat me to it.

Anyway, joking aside, RIP Tim, I really liked this:
There will be no funeral as Tim's remains were donated to the University of Tennessee Cancer Research Facility in hope that because of his generous donation, a cure for the cancer that took his life might save someone else.

Go get 'em boys, let's get singing!  Turn to hymn 276.

And remember the great Earnhardt commandment; Thou shalt only rub paint with who rubs paint with you first or won't get out of the way.  Follow the draft and watch your gas.

No burial, but did the hearse at least do a victory burn out?  Or did it run the victory lap in reverse?

Any word from Memphis about the appearance of many heavenly mansions on 23 March?  If so, did visitors to Graceland report the whirring sounds of Elvis' body rotating in his grave?
 
2013-03-27 10:22:03 AM  
At least it wasn't "infected everyone that came near him"

I didn't know that having a corpse on hand was a condition precedent to having a funeral.  Obviously there wouldn't be a burial.  But  " A funeral is a ceremony for celebrating, respecting, sanctifying, or remembering the life of a person who has died. "

You don't need a body for that, just a death.

There will be a memorial service, I left that out when I copied & pasted

So, Tim here went somewhere to do something on a day.   That is a single sentence.

I would guess they just skipped the whole funeral parlor experience to save money, but had a memorial family cookout.  Without the body I wouldn't pay a for a place to hold a memorial service either and for a Earnhardt believer, you only need beer, friends and BBQ.

It's still a dangling modifier, and punctuation or rewriting would help. It's not incomprehensible or anything, but it is ambiguous.

All farking aside, I bet that is a really nice and friendly family. You know, the kind of Aunt Bea type.

Probably racist, too, but do not mean to be. Just the up bringin' thing.

Yeah...uh...that got real weird alrighty.  I...just...real weird.  Never seen such weirdness.
What do Dale Earnhardt and Pink Floyd have in common?  Their greatest hit was the wall.

I will not stand by and see the memory of St. Dale tarnished by some left wing cyber rag. And Jesus.

I must be missing the weird. Can someone point it out?
 
2013-03-27 12:24:37 PM  
Somebody was saying the other day that they didn't Sr was that big a deal when he was alive, and only became a godlike figure after his death.

This guy is proof that was decidedly not the case.

Hope all the tracks in heaven are 3 wide, my friend.

BojanglesPaladin: I must be missing the weird. Can someone point it out?


I can't find it either. The guy was apparently a Nascar fan and built houses for a living, I guess some people think that's weird. My dad was an auto mechanic and liked hockey so maybe my view point is skewed.

Tim "I lie to Batman" Wayne, dead? No, that was the other Robin, Damian Wayne. Tim just got retconned.

Is it because the nicknames of the survivors all have a different gender than their real names?  I have no idea.

Subby, you must live a sheltered life if you think this qualifies as weird.  Seems like a pretty basic, slightly joyous obit for someone who probably suffered for a while before he passed.  The "goes to be with Dale Earnhart" line is great, and I'm sure we'll see more of it as NASCAR fans learn to read learn about this.  But not weird.
 
2013-03-27 10:42:48 PM  
Nascar fans?

BWAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!

j/k

or am I?

Hey, whatever turns you  on left.
