TODAY'S FUNNY ~
These are reported to be actual epitaphs on tombstones:
For not rising. (Ruidoso, New Mexico)
Here lays Butch,
We planted him raw.
He was quick on the trigger,
But slow on the draw. (Silver City, Nevada)
The children of Israel wanted bread
And the Lord sent them manna,
Old clerk Wallace wanted a wife,
And the Devil sent him Anna. (Ribbesford, England)
She always said her feet were killing her
but nobody believed her. (Richmond, Virginia)
Here lies the body of our Anna
Done to death by a banana
It wasn't the fruit that laid her low
But the skin of the thing that made her go.
(Enosburg Falls, Vermont)
Harry Edsel Smith
Born 1903--Died 1942
Looked up the elevator shaft to see if
the car was on the way down. It was. (Albany, New York)
An anonymous tombstone:
I was somebody.
Who, is no business
Of yours. (Stowe, Vermont)
In Memory of Beza Wood
Departed this life
Nov. 2, 1837
Aged 45 yrs.
Here lies one Wood
Enclosed in wood
The outer wood
Is very good:
We cannot praise
The other. (Winslow, Maine)
REFLECTIONS AND TIDBITS:
A closed mind is a dying mind.
