Sense, Common
OBITUARY Died 24/7/365
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of 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 inbureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as
knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn't always fair. Common Sense lived by simple,sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies(adults, not kids, are in charge).

His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-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.

His health declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student; however they could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Finally, Common sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, she spilled a bit in her lap, and was awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by two stepbrothers; My Rights and Ima Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you knew him pass this on, if not join the majority and do nothing.
How true Twila, how true.
Yes, it's true...Common Dog is gone.

However, with respect to the McDonald's coffee case, anyone interested in it should read this: (external - login to view)

The world has turned this into a 'woman is too dumb to drink coffee' case instead of the debilitating injury case that it was.
