Make 'Em Laugh! Make 'Em Laugh!

I've been doing some thinking about the whole idea of funerals and wakes and memorial services and that.  After all, I suspect I'm closer to the end of my life than the beginning.

And I've come to a decision.

Funerals and memorial services and such are for the living, to help them grieve, process, and move on.

That said, I don't want a memorial service.

I want a roast.

I want my funniest friends to get up on a dais and make jokes about me.  Just like in real life, anything funny about me is fair game.  I want bald jokes.  I want fat jokes.  I want jokes about how geeky I am.  I want jokes about my religion.  I want jokes about mermaids (not that I have mermaids on the brain or anything).  I want jokes about my political leanings.

How would I react?  1)  I'm dead, what do I care?  and 2) my only regret would be that I can't hear it inside my box.

Remember, this is me.  If it's funny, you ain't in trouble.

Start writing....
