..Wonder who authored THIS obituary??
Obits, Pravda

Posted on 07/20/2008 6:23:36 PM PDT by ErnBatavia

My eye landed on this Gilligan's Island kinda pic in today's obits, so I read it.....rather appalling, if you axe me.

Anyone else got any "interesting" obits to pop up here for a slow Sunday evening?

Gee, I wonder if they’ll mention her husband in her forthcoming obituary since half of his included information about her?

She must have been wife #2 considering they were only married 28 years and she looks a whole lot younger than him in the pic

I wonder what the children from the first marriage have to say about her and none of the six children were mentioned by name.

One of my favorites in the Dallas paper obit mentioned how the deceased was “blessed with beautiful skin and hair”

“They” is her. I’m sure she wrote it.

One of my first thoughts was a Gilligan's Island thang....the authrorette sounds more than a bit like Lovie. She maybe jumped ship and went for the brass...

Which leads back to that age-old question; Marianne or Ginger?

Sounds to me as if the guy had a pretty successful life ... the scope of which many FReepers could only hope to aspire. But that’s just me ...

Oooh, Marianne. Saw her on TV recently; 60-ish, and still remarkably hot.

So come on show me what kinda man.

Actually, at least it’s interesting.

When my husband died I was too upset to have a hand in his obit. All it says is a bunch of names, where he was born and that he used to be a letter carrier. He HATED being a letter carrier.

I know he would have liked it much more if it had talked about his music or his family.

Now this man jumped in the water and saved a bunch of people when a guy blew his finger off. That was probably one of his favorite stories, and now everyone knows. Egad.

At least she is looking better than our former Democratic presidential hopeful and wasn’t photographed with her mock camel toe.
You white folks are funny, Marianne or Ginger? Delmont says how about a little reverse Oreo manage-a-conjugate action and do both of them?

CAT and LISTER are lying on bunks in a darkened room, watching television.

LISTER: Cat?
CAT: Mmm?
LISTER: Ya ever see the Flintstones?
CAT: Sure!
LISTER: D’ya think Wilma’s sexy?
CAT: Wilma Flintstone?
LISTER: Maybe we’ve been alone in deep space too long, but every time I see that sharmi body, it drives me crazy. Is it me?
CAT: Well, I think in all probability, Wilma Flintstone is the most desirable woman that ever lived.
LISTER: That’s good. I thought I was goin’ strange.
CAT: She’s incredible!
LISTER: What d’ya think of Betty?
CAT: Betty Rubble? (Pause) Well, I would go with Betty... but I’d be thinking of Wilma.
LISTER: This is crazy. Why are we talking about going to bed with Wilma Flintstone?
CAT: You’re right. We’re nuts. This is an insane conversation.
LISTER: She’ll never leave Fred, and we know it.

CAT shakes his head in resignation.

That is perhaps the funniest bit on a show with hundreds of goood bits. The punchline slays me every time.
