Yes... He's lying up there in sick bay now, stiff as a board and bright green, and this is, I fear, typical of his current attitude. You see, the boy has no sense of moderation: one moment he's flying around like a paper kite, and the next moment he's completely immovable. And beginning to smell.

The whole script

When I went to my dads funeral, I later spent some time visiting a friend.
We went into a gift store, and he started looking at sympathy cards.

He started reading some to me, and I was trying not to laugh (guess you had to be there)

I totally lost it though, and had to literally sit down on the floor laughing from one card that began....

"He's not here right now"



Well, back in the eighties we had a client who in the course of some long conversation with all of us told about the day that one of his business associates died at his desk. The phone kept ringing, and he kept saying, he's not here right now - will you leave a message. (This might have been before the prevalence of answer machines, I can't remember, or maybe he resorted to one of those later.)

He needed to call a md and the family before just announcing, uh, he's dead . . .
Anyway, it wasn't a recent event and we all laughed our brains out.

@djjd62,
Karsey is toilet, throne, pedestal, not no mealy mouthed bathroom.

Laffter erupted among the secretaries n clerks in my law firm,
when I spoke of a plaintiff having checked out.

I was a little surprized.

@ossobuco,
You have my permission to laugh when I die. It will be a nice accompanyment.
