    Talking remarkable obituary

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,
    Mr. Common Sense.
    Mr. Sense had 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 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.

    Mr. Sense declined even further when
    schools were required to get parental consent
    to administer aspirin to a student;
    but, 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 financial 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 still remember him,
    pass this on;
    if not, join the majority and do nothing.

    Talk on, talk on.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.
