Common Sense is dead

  1. Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, by the name of
    Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
    No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were
    long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as
    having cultivated such valued lessons as knowing when to come in out
    of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn't
    always fair.

    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend
    more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not
    kids, are in charge).

    His health began to rapidly 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 from school for using mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher
    fired for reprimanding an unruly student only worsened his condition.
    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental
    consent to administer aspirin to a student but could not inform the
    parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an

    Finally, Common sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments
    became contraband, churches became businesses and criminals received
    better treatment than their victims. Common Sense finally gave up the
    ghost after athletes and CEOs salaries increased to between 9
    thousand and 90 thousand dollars per HOUR, and woman failed to
    realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, spilled it in her lap,
    and was awarded a huge settlement for simply being stupid.

    Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust,
    his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son,
    Reason. He is survived by two stepbrothers; My Rights and Ima Whiner.

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