You missed the point there, EH. He's saying that he wants to be unceremoniously trampled and squelched into the EPDM-surfaced, ISO-approved protective rubber ground like grapes pressed between the toes of wage-slave bare-foot urchins as a pseudo-performance-art metaphor simultaneously demonstrating the carefree and callous brutality of small children juxtaposed with the modern post-Rousseau politically-correct adult-designed utopia of a literal safe space.

... because that's "what the world is really like". As Hobbes pointed out, children are "brutal, nasty and short".

It's a tradition we do in my family. We have a party and celebrate the life of the person who passed away. Lots of drinking and eating and telling funny stories and heartfelt remembrances of the person.

I went to a kinda Irish wake on Wednesday. In the 2016 thread, I made a quip about what to wear... him being Irish (tradition = black) but his wife being Malay Buddhist (tradition = white) and considered wearing both like a pint of Guinness.

Weird to see my friend/rival lying there in silence ... cos in life, you could never stop the ol' bastard talking!

To my delight, Kerry's 15 year-old son (who organised it) wore a Guinness t-shirt. Kudos. Bowing

Next week will be the service for my brother-out-law ... they're hiring a friggin' castle! because, I'm told, they wanted to keep the numbers down (yes, you read that right).

That's style Yes

But then, he was the president of the largest union in the UK. The symbolism of using a feudal relic for someone who strived, with genuine humility and love, for a socialist utopia tickles me more than it should.

Big Grin

I'm sorry for the loss of your friend and your brother-out-law Hug it definitely sounds like they both went out in style though Wink

Ok, I cannot believe I didn't think someone would take it that way haha but I didn't mean those types of movies.

RE: Your funeral
My kids say they're gonna mix my ashes with some weed, roll it up in a billy and smoke me. Sounds good to me.

#sigh

RE: Your funeral
I want them to donate any useful body part and then plant what's left of me with a tree. Just not a fruit tree...that'd be a lil weird.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

RE: Your funeral
I want to be cremated. I would like a portion of my ashes folded into some metal and made into rings for my daughters. Then i want the remainder loaded into enormous fireworks. Then, I want a celebration, something akin to an Irish wake, with booze and a live band. At the conclusion of the party, I want a massive fireworks show where I will be blasted into the sky and then burned up in a fiery display spreading my ashes on the wind.

But whatever happens, I don't suppose I'll care. I'll refrain from returning from the grave to haunt anyone as long as there is no formal funeral service type crap.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

I changed my mind. I want my remains scattered across disney world. No cremation.
