Happy Thursday Chuckleheads…
First of all, I want to thank all of you for all the kind words and comments that you sent to me in response to the loss of my brother, John.
Between phone calls, Twitter, Facebook, and here at Bagwine Ruminations, your outpouring of affection was to say the least, overwhelming.
I thank you all for that.
The viewing is Friday and the funeral is Saturday, so today? Thursday? I need to fill a void.
“How will you fill that void, Matt-Man?”, you ask.
Today is Thursday so tonight at 11 PM EDT, Jayman and I will be broadcasting another award-winning installment of I’m With Stupid on Blog Talk Radio.
Now, tonight’s show was going to be about Sexism. Jayman and I were labeled as sexist by a certain passive aggressive person because we have chicks with great tits and asses send us I’m With Stupid promo pictures like this:
However, as events changed with the death of my brother, and due to the fact that we like to stay topical, we thought we would change the topic to the following…
Death: The Lighter Side
Is death funny? Is the loss of a loved one, humorous? Is the feeling of sadness resulting from corporeal expiration, a punch line?
Yes and No.
Nobody likes to lose a loved one but viewings and funerals bring out not only the best, but the worst in people as well.
There are people who show up who you know really didn’t like the deceased. There are people who show because they “have to”. And…
In the case of a funeral involving a member of an Irish-Catholic family, there are those who show up merely for the free, drunken, post-burial wake.
Sure…I will probably cry Friday during the viewing and most definitely during the funeral on Saturday, but in the meantime, let’s have some fun.
So tonight, join Jayman and I as we celebrate the lives of individuals by making light of death and the uber-maudlin rituals associated with it.

Listen in. Call in. And…Help us mock the Grim Reaper and those who fall prey to his psychosis.
Thanks again for your words of sympathy, and as always…
