I didn't write it....it's amusing
Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense:
'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, 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 valuable lessons as:
Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.
Reports of a 6-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.
Common Sense lost even more ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Elastoplast to a pupil; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense struggled to breathe as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment thantheir victims.
Common Sense took another beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge cash 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 his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.
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...
Rest in peace dear friend. You will be remembered but hardly missed/As time passes on, the memory of you ever exist will then be gone. The world keeps on rolling like you've never been around.
ROFL...it's a world gone mad!
I've always thought a little common sense goes a long way.
Love is the answer...
Read Bertrand Russell's book - The Conquest of Happiness which explains what must one do to be happy by following simple paradigm's for good living.
Common sense...unfortunately, is not so common
Yes Common sense will be sadly missed. :(
