Subject: RE: Folklore: Gallows Humor-laughing at death/disease
A lot of folks thought the first post and title of the thread were mostly about Jade. Once it was explained, it helped, BUT Joe didn't let it go, even taking his tirade over to another thread. As someone else just said, if this had been taken care of right away, with a title change and/or more explanation, it wouldn't have escalated so much, imo.

And, now...did you hear about the woman who was dying of lung cancer from second-hand smoke? She was mad at her husband, the smoker. She left explicit instructions for the funeral parlour. They were to cremate her body, put some of the ashes in a tobacco pouch and send it to her husband with a handwritten card from her which read,
"Put this in your pipe and smoke it!"
