titwrench: 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.


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.

But getting back to the obit... What's Teri's Fark handle?

I hope that whenever it is that I shuffle off this mortal coil that those that more or less cared about me put as much time & thought into an awesome obituary as these people did. Well, well, done.  She sounded like a whole lot of fun & the world is a lesser place.

Sounds like when my dad passed. He had esophageal cancer that spread so damn quick. When
chemo failed, rather than stay in a hospital, hospice set up a bed for him in his parents' living room
that overlooked the lake (my dad was a big boater and fisherman).

When it looked like the end was near, I Greyhound-ed it up to TN to be with him. His last words on
this earth were, "Well f*ck sh*t!", said when I told him that some friends of his from his school days
were on their way up from Florida to see him.

He died with his friends and family around him, music playing on the stereo and an old Redskins
game from their 80's glory days on the TV.

We all knew he didn't want us crying over his death, so it came as no surprise to us when a few...
interesting...things happened right after he died.

My grandpa went to call hospice to send out someone to pick up my dad. So he picks up the
phone and we hear him say "He's dead...please come pick up the body." there was a pause and
then, "I am SO sorry. I think I have the wrong number."

We all about peed ourselves laughing.

The next day, at the funeral home, we were making the final arrangements. My dad was to be
cremated and beyond what they were going to put in the memorial urn and all of the smaller
urns, my mom wanted some separate so she could visit all of their favorite fishing spots and
spread some of his ashes at each one.

The funeral directory looks at us somberly and says "We can give them to you, but we don't
have a designated container for extra ashes. We can put them in a plastic baggie for you though."

We laughed so hard, I know the funeral director thought we were nuts. The plastic baggie was
a perfect suggestion, as my dad had smoked pot almost daily.

There was no funeral, no ashes interred. There was a memorial about a month after he died
and all of his friends, co-workers and bandmates were there. A good time was had by all, and
that is just the way he would have wanted it.

I don't think the people in my life are sure whether or not to take me seriously, but I want my funeral to be in a large outdoor amphitheater, open casket on a dais at center stage, with a 40-piece orchestra performing Tchaikovsky's "1812" Overture, complete with the cannons and fireworks. When people ask me why, I tell them, "If you attended a funeral like that, would YOU ever forget it?"

I tend toward the dramatic.

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.


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.

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.

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.
