Joke(?): Obituary Of Common Sense

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 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

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.

It 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

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 Im a Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized
he was gone. If you still know him pass this on, if not
join the majority and do nothing.
