Prey4reign: Now, that's a send off!  I'll bet Toni had a hand in writing this before she died.


This.

"Graham Chapman, co-author of the Parrot Sketch", is no more. He has ceased to be. Bereft of life, he rests in peace. He's kicked the bucket, hopped the twig, bit the dust, snuffed it, breathed his last, and gone to meet the great Head of Light Entertainment in the sky. And I guess that we're all thinking how sad it is that a man of such talent, of such capability for kindness, of such unusual intelligence, should now so suddenly be spirited away at the age of only forty-eight, before he'd achieved many of the things of which he was capable, and before he'd had enough fun.
Well, I feel that I should say: nonsense. Good riddance to him, the freeloading bastard, I hope he fries. And the reason I feel I should say this is he would never forgive me if I didn't, if I threw away this glorious opportunity to shock you all on his behalf. Anything for him, but mindless good taste.  "

I think she and Graham would have gotten along quite well.

Have you ever been to a good old fashioned Irish Catholic Wake? You haven't lived until you have heard the deceased's business partner call the deceased's daughter a whore during a eulogy and get a laugh.

Lost my mom last year to cancer, had a big send off/party as she would have wanted. Celebrate the life of the person you've lost, unless they're a prick.

/Dropped the F bomb during the eulogy knowing my mom would have been horrified, but it was only to say "you all know my mom, she was farkING AWESOME" The rabbi said he's never seen someone drop the F bomb at a eulogy and have people smile like that. miss ya mom

No Catholocism involved, but when my Grampa died, we had what I would call a typical Irish wake. Lots of booze, lots of song, lots of drunk hugging/laughing/crying/remembering.

It was less about mourning his passing and more about celebrating his life.

How do you know he didn't type it correctly and auto correct farked him? This grammer Nazi crap is boring, bush league attention whoring at its most rudimentary. Scanning posts for typos and grammatical errors so you can blast somebody is farking juvenile. Sorry people don't write three drafts of every post to make sure it's perfect but get over it. You add nothing to the conversation. You are the equivalent of people that yell "bah bah bah" whenever they hear Sweet Caroline.

That and the night before the funeral, taking the deceased out on the town for "last round."


The deceased was a bar owner. We just got right knackered the night before at his bar.

"Anyone wearing black will not be admitted to the memorial. "
I really like this kind of thinking, ever since I heard Jim Henson's memorial had the same policy.
They sent Jim off singing his favourite songs, and not wearing black. They were celebrating his life, and trying not to be moody about it.

Toni often remarked that her son, Jean III, was "just like his father," her ex-husband, Jean Jr., a statement that haunts her son to this day.

I don't scan looking for errors, but I know I have a hard time appreciating someone's opinion if they can't express it clearly. If you're going to take the time to post, how hard is it to spell check?

Jon Stewart described an Irish wake well:  I've never been sadder and laughed harder in my life.

When my grandfather died, my grandmother and aunts and uncles came over to our house to sort out arrangements. My mom sent me to the grocery store with $100, and sent my brother to the liquor store with $200.

When my grandmother died, she peppered her personal property list (part of her will) with inside jokes. We all sat around getting drunk and laughing at her notes to each of us.

We don't scan posts for them.  They jump out when one is reading a post and slap the reader across the face, saying "Look!! I'm a farking illiterate adult!  Look at me!"  Is it too much to ask that one use basic grammar skills?  It's not a simple spelling mistake, or something caused by typing too fast.  It's ignorance.  If you are in favor of ignorance, continue to be a moron but spare the rest of us your asshatery.

And it's grammar, you twit.

I didn't know Henson memorial had that, but I love it.

And would also like to have a beer or tea with the family.  They sound kickass, and she sounds like she raised 'em with an awesome sense of humor about life in general.  And that's an awesome thing to have in this workaday world.

Does it really "slap you across the face"? Or are you feigning outrage over something completely benign so you can get your feathers ruffled and show your superiority over someone else. I can see being bothered by the content of someone's post but to get bent out of shape when someone misspelled a word is reaching for something because you have no arguments or points of your own. Your post proved my point. You added nothing to the conversation and resulted to name calling while trying to appear as you are the superior person. Thank you for your help.

I went to one for a cattle guy. It was all pearl buttons, blue jeans and cowboy boots. The plus was it was a military funeral. It was a nice send off. I wanted to sneak one of these on his urn (with his widows blessing). She thought it would be a good idea but also said she would not be responsible for my condition after the Army guys finished with me. This is the card. I also have the stickers.

Pointing out obvious typos or who gives a shait errors on the internet is really the biatchiest form of bullying.
Narrate in a Brian Reagan voice-"OH MY GOD, LOOK AT WHAT THAT GUY MESSED UP THERE!!!! And then look at me cause I figured it out!!!!! Before anyone else!!!! LOOk, did you see? If this was a book, it would have a typo and I would have found it!!!!!"
Its not a book, its the the farking internet. No one normal cares. Suck a bag of dicks.
