Subj: Angry, Old Man Dies (S793)
From: virv on 3/23/2012
An old man and woman were married
for many years, even though
they hated each other. Whenever there was a confrontation,
yelling could be heard deep into the night. The old man would
shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave
and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!"
Neighbors feared him. They
believed he practiced magic because
of the many strange occurrences that took place in their neighbor-
hood. The old man liked the fact that he was feared. To every-
one's relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 98. His wife
had a closed casket at the funeral.
After the burial, she went straight
to the local bar and began
to party as if there was no tomorrow. Her neighbors, concerned
for her safety, asked "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be
able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest
of your life?"
The wife put down her drink and
said, "Let him dig. I had him
buried upside down. And I know he won't ask for directions."

Subj: Bagpiper At A Pauper's Funeral (S676, S782)

(Also see 'Minister's First Funeral' in Preacher-supp)
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs.
Recently I was asked by a
funeral director to play at a grave side service for a home-
less man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to
be at a pauper's cemetery in the Kentucky back-country.
As I was not familiar with the
backwoods, I got lost; and
being a typical man I didn't stop for directions. I finally
arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently
gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only
the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.
I felt badly and apologized to
the men for being late. I
went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault
lid was already in place.
I didn't know what else to do,
so I started to play. The
workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.
I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family
and friends. I played like I've never played before for
this homeless man. And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the
workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept
together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and
started for my car. Though my head hung low my heart was
As I was opened the door to my
car, I heard one of the
workers say, "Sweet Mother of Jesus, I never seen nothin'
like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks
for twenty years."

Subj: Preparing For The Future (S625)
From: LABLaughsAdult on 12/31/2008
It was a difficult subject to
bring before his aged
mother, but John felt that he must.
"Mom, you are no longer a spring
chicken and you do
need to think ahead of what will happen in the future.
Why don't we make arrangements about when..... you
know... when.... God forbid... you pass on?"
The mother didn't say anything,
just sat there staring
"I mean, Mom, like.... how do
you want to finally go?
Do you want to be buried? Cremated?"
There was yet another long pause.
Then the mother looked
up and said, "Son, why don't you simply surprise me?"
