Macabre Humor At Irishman’s Funeral

He put the fun in funeral. He left them laughing.

Not knowing him, I find this a bit disturbing, maybe. I dunno.

Man makes recording to play at his funeral

  1. Cry at a birth and laugh at a funeral.

    A drunken mick told me that was the Irish character.

    Moe Tom could have told us.

  2. I would totally do this. I would ask the pastor to, earlier, read a goodbye statement from me about wishing I could make them laugh even after I was gone.

    They would so get it and I think it would be a mix of tears and laughter. “That is so Dadof4!” Might be the common agreement among them.

    Humor and un-ending Dad jokes while I’m here and something to remember me by after I’m gone.

  3. I would do this. As a dadof3 and grandpa of 11, they wait for my stupid dad jokes, songs, & puns at every family gathering. I don’t want them sad, I want them glad they knew me at my funeral.

  4. I’m still waiting for Moe Tom’s Obit to be published, I was thinking it’s too bad he didn’t write it himself in his own words. But then again maybe he DID and they are trying to figure out if words like “FEKKIN” and “FOOKEN” and “WANKER” should be edited out! Like they say God created whiskey so us Irish wouldn’t take over the world!

  5. “It’s your funeral, buddy”.
    At least he had the time (knowledge) to plan for those who knew him best. RIP

  6. When I die, I want a closed casket service. however towards the end of the service, have the organist play “Pop goes the weasel”, over and over again, until everyone in attendance is staring at my coffin in silent, horrified anticipation.

    “Always look on the bright side of life
    (Come on)
    Always look on the right side of life
    For life is quite absurd
    And death’s the final word
    You must always face the curtain with a bow
    Forget about your sin
    Give the audience a grin
    Enjoy it, it’s your last chance anyhow”
    -Eric Idle

    …played very slowly, with a dramatic pause just before “pop”…

    “Nothing like leaving them laughing…”

    “You’ll see it’s all a show,
    Keep ’em laughing as you go.
    Just remember that the last laugh is on you!”
    -also Eric Idle, “Always look on the bright side of life”

  10. I want to put my favorite stupid dad joke on my headstone. What did the elephant say to the naked man? That’s cute but how do you breathe thru it. I want people to get a good laugh when they see my headstone. My oldest daughter would probably kill me if I did but since I’d be dead already there’s nothing that she could do about it.
