Gone to enternity to be with his two best friends...

  1. We had a priceless obit in this morning's paper.
    "The departed is happy now that he will spend eternity with his two best friends, God and John Wayne."

  2. Heaven needed a bad metaphor.

    I regret to inform you, Recently Deceased, that John Wayne cannot come out and play right now. He is being bossed around and henpecked by Katherine Hepburn and Maureen O'Hara.

    John Wayne and God walk into a bar. The bartender only gives them one drink. Why? John Wayne is God.

    Now I'll have to work on a list for my obit.

    Sam Kinison is on it, for sure.

    I'm betting it was a paid obit, and the family can write almost anything in it.

    Rock against drugs... ah, priceless. Isn't that like Christians against Christ?

    We could use a few Kinison words now and then.
