Subject: RE: Folklore: Gallows Humor-laughing at death/dise
I am glad that you have opened the thread

As a "civil family of friends" bound with more than a decade of community perhaps we can share together.

I am more than happy to explain, "why death be not proud" and the "moldering worm is not the triumph of the grave" - for the first time in a decade - there is a "kindred brother within the threads" who appears willing to share.

Some terms post above "coping mechanism" - (It is NOT coping - nor is it a mechanism)if you think "hospices are full of dying" (then you do not understand hospice) - "denigrate the rest of us" - (No One can denigrate You unless You permit them - regarding "us" - ya got a mouse in your pocket - who be "us") "discussion about people who are still alive but may be dying" - (doesn't that pretty much discribe EVERYONE currently bound by our current mortal state?) "funny, slapstick funny old movies" (wasn't that what cured and led Alan Ladd to create "Candid Camrera?"

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Always delighted to laugh with the above poster - (not AT .... I wrote WITH)
