Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Are you sure they’re not miserable enough with you being alive?

Nah i’m a ray of sunshine.

Seriously though it’s staggering the amount of people I know that will go to any old funeral going just because there will be a piss up after.

Just before she died last year we asked my mum what she wanted playing at her funeral.... Her response was, I don't care I won't be there will I!

So between us we came up with a couple of choices, my sisters being a little awkward as knowing my mums sense of humour we expected to hear a knock on the coffin during the song!

On a similar cheery thought, where do people stand on burial or incineration and if the latter where are the ashes going?

I'd rather donate my body to science. Let some trainee surgeons cut me open and have a poke about inside.

If/when I pop my clogs in Greece I’m not entirely sure if I want to remain here or be returned to Blighty. I know it really makes fuck all difference, but . . .

I used to fancy being scattered around the CG - an arm here, a leg there, me arse pointing towards the Bank.

Apparently, the British cemetery here is full so I’d have to go the Greek Orthodox route, I guess.

I’d go with what FH says about body disposal, although as I’ll be dead and don’t give a fuck I’ll leave it up to whoever is the position of authority.

Mince me up and flush me down the toilet in a port talbot working mans club for all I care.

Song wise it’d have to be irritating or something nobody would like. Bird is the word or 10 minutes of minimalist Japanese techno.

The club don't allow that unless its done surreptitiously by a family member or mate.

What they do allow is have the ashes buried about 4 foot down under the goals as they did for my dad when he died.
