    As Henry Gibson says:
    Although, so far there’s no known treatment for death’s crippling effects, still everyone can acquaint himself with the three early warning signs of death: one, rigor mortis; two, a rotting smell; three, occasional drowsiness.
    In the past year, over 800,000 millions have died. Despite millions of dollars of research, death continues to be our nation’s number one killer.
    It is also important to know what to do you when you die. 1) Don’t try to drive a car. 2) Do not operate heavy machinery. 3) Do not talk.

    Three years ago our Johnny died. We thought there was no hope, but then we discovered the United Appeal for the Dead. They showed us that despite Johnny’s handicap, he could still be a useful member of our family and the community. Our United Appeal for the Dead caseworker showed us that the absence of life from Johnny’s body didn’t have to mean his absence from our daily lives.

    Unwilling councilman actually seems like a sensible chap, and has a cute cat. Probably a better candidate than many…

    While a lot of people give me endless shit for being a vegetarian, an unexpected perk is that I can refuse circus peanuts from the three people in the world who don’t think they’re gross. One of those people was my ex-husband, which probably should have been a red flag on day one.
