Common Sense is Dead!
An Obitieary for a belovered old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as, knowing when to come in from the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn't always fair and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived his life by simple, sound finacial policilies, don't spend more than you earn and other realiable stratigies - adults, not children are in charge.

His health started to 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 for using mouthwash after lunch and a teacher fired for reprimanding a unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a intruder in your own home and the intruder could sue you for assault.

Common Sense gave up the will to live after a woman failed to realise a steaming cup of coffee was hot, she spilled a little in her lap and was promptly awarded a hugh settlement.

Common Sense was preceeded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility and his son, Reason.
He is survived by four step brothers, I Know my Rights, I Want it Now, Someone Else is to Blame and I'm a Victim.

..Not many attended his funeral, because so few realised he was gone.
