    Hahaha. Finally, someone with a sense of humour.

    Luckily, I've never actually been to a funeral. I think I'd be pretty dangerous let loose inside a church at such a sensitive occasion. Not for me.
    There are some opportunities that must not be missed and that was one of them. Another terrible one was at college after my best friend killed himself. I walked into the common room filled with people mourning and said "Who died?". That was taken even worse than the funeral joke. It was a golden moment in my life.

    Sure he was your best friend? haha.

    There was a moment like that back at secondary school. To cut a long story short, the dad of a boy in our year had hung himself overnight on a tree in our school field. One of my mates had the balls to ask the poor lad 'How's it hanging?'. I didn't know whether to laugh or walk away.

    That is pretty terrible. I feel almost bad for chuckling.

    I wouldn't worry, I felt exactly the same at the time.
