Isn't It Sad?

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr. Common Sense.

    Mr. Sense had 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 value lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, and that life isn't always fair.

    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge).

    His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. - Reports of a six- 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.

    Mr. Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student; but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

    Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live, as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

    Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, she spilled a bit in her lap, and was awarded a huge settlement.

    Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.

    Two stepbrothers, My Rights and Ima Whiner survive him.

    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.

    I had realised that someone was missing! I'm gutted that I missed the funeral. How sad that someone who was so dear to our hearts once is no longer around.

    Common Sense will be missed! :(

    By some anyway!

    Chill, Ben!

    You were like that once upon a time, believe it or not. You weren't thinking of teaching as a career were you? (It does pay the bills while you do the good stuff) ;)

    There never was any such thing as common sense. If there was everyone would have it (and by extension no one could complain about anyone not having it.)
