    Unhappy An Interesting and Sad Obituary.......

    "An Obituary printed in the London Times........
    Interesting and sadly rather true...

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,
    Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
    No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth
    records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
    He will be remembered as having cultivated such
    valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the
    rain;
    Why the early bird gets the worm;
    Life isn't always fair;
    and maybe it was my fault.

    Common Sense lived by simple,
    sound financial policies (don't spend more than you
    can earn)
    and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in
    charge).

    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when
    well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in
    place.
    Reports of a 6-year-old boy
    charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate;
    teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after
    lunch;
    and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student,
    only worsened his condition.

    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers
    for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in
    disciplining their unruly children.

    It declined even further when schools were required to
    get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin
    to a student;
    but could not inform parents when a student became
    pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

    Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches
    became businesses;
    and criminals received better treatment than their
    victims.

    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't
    defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the
    burglar could sue you for assault.

    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live,
    after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of
    coffee was hot.
    She spilled a little in her lap and was promptly
    awarded a huge settlement.

    Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents,
    Truth and Trust,
    by his wife, Discretion,
    by his daughter, Responsibility,
    and by his son, Reason.

    He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
    I Know My Rights
    I Want It Now
    Someone Else Is To Blame
    I'm A Victim

    Not many attended his funeral because so few realized
    he was gone."

    Actually I thought he passed a long time ago.

    It’s really a shame so few people ever got to know him.

    RIP C. Sense

    I think he was survived by twin cousins too:

    You Owe Me
    The World Owes Me.

    Yes, Common Sense will truly be missed by those who knew.
