Hopefully Mine Will Be Appropriately Offensive

Esbee lists some euphemisms for "died" that were used in today’s obituaries in the Winston-Salem Journal.  Most involve God which is no surprise for this town, but when I’m ready to chew dirt I hope those responsible for my obituary come up with something quirky, odd and downright offensive.  I was thinking I could mandate it in my will, but that requires the kind of planning everyone knows I’m incapable of so I’ll just leave it to my dearly un-departed.

    Don’t bother. The will isn’t usually filed until after the funeral. You’ll want to stick it in your Living Will, right next to your DNR.
    I once saw one that said so-and-so went out to the field for the last time, which doesn’t mention God. I’ve seen baseball metaphors, NASCAR metaphors, you name it. I live for obituary euphemism. It’s a fine art, as far as I’m concerned.
