whither are we going

Death's a funny old business

So at the Quaker business meeting today, one of the items was the suggestion we should have a funeral organiser instead of the more informal funeral advisers that we have at the moment. In the discussion of the duties of the organiser, the presenter of the suggestion made the remark, "the organiser wouldn't have to attend the funeral, just do the spade work." Muffled snorts from the meeting until the presenter twigged to what he had said and joined in the roar of laughter.
