Didn’t you read somewhere that the “Wake” originated in Ireland because sometimes people would awake during their funeral?

Never in the history of Free Republic have so many said so little with so many words.

“Obviously, they don’t embalm in Mexico.”

They don’t in the US either for newborns, their veins are too small for the embalming equipment. Which in this case was a good thing.

I don't know a thing about it, but I'm sure I've seen babies with IVs in hospitals.

Off topic, but try the poem Jabberwocky to the tune of Greensleeves. Fits perfectly, and somewhwere Lewis Carroll may be saying "somebody finally got it!"

You're right! You're right! By Jove, you really got it!

I found the Jabberwocky poem and jumped right in, warbling the words to the "Greensleeves" melody in my most ardent and uffish way. The words fit perfectly!

Now the lyrics and music are gyreing and gimbeling around my fulgey head, whiffling out my beamish lips, burbling as the lovely notes outgrabe around and behind the looking glass.

Thank you, thank you....we now are the only ones privy to Lewis Carroll's mimsy secret. This means you and I will be snicker-snacked together till the end of thyme.

How frabjous!

I read somewhere that the “Wake” originated in Ireland because sometimes people would awake during their funeral. The Wake give them a proper time period to do just that.

My great-great grandfather "woke" during his wake.

SEVEN DUPE POSTS. I think that’s a F.R. Record.

Nope. I did 9 once. When I came back and saw it, my face was RED!
