Hilarious Headline: The Writer Must've Been On Deadline

I saw this while I was dead tired, and - make no bones about it - I just about killed myself laughing. (And now I'll stop with the lame puns.) Thank you, News24, for making me giggle for a change.

That is just too classic.

*snort* For the record: you can never have too many lame puns.

I love this! Found you through Twitter... will definitely be back, especially if I can expect to read more with such a twisted sense of humour. ;)

Pretty dead end job, if you ask me

TimT said:

I wonder if there's any skullduggery amongst the staff?

Redsaid Author Profile Page said:

TimT: Only among those working the graveyard shift!

Marco: Nyar har! Don't be so morbid!

India: A new sucke... I mean... reader!!! WELCOME! What? Twisted humour? No humour to be seen here I'm afraid (not even American humor). Not twisted or otherwise. We're as serious as DEATH Itself. (LOVE your name, by the way! And as you've subsequently discovered, I have found you on Twitter and promptly followed you. This way, I can guaranteeeee that you'll NEVER get away, bwhahahahahahahahaaaa!)

Kyk: In that case, I've heard that two of the skeletons have subsequently quit the crematorium crew and are now pursuing modelling careers. *LAMEST!*

Po: I know, right? This type of reference to death on News24 is like a total breath of fresh air.

Dead funny if you ask me. (rib tickling?)

The Crematorium is in the dead centre of Gauteng.

I suppose that people could get quite heated about this news...

Still, you only get the bare bones of the story...

I wonder if part of the reasons for the strike is the need to have smoke breaks?

All these poor jokes are making me quite ashen...

Mr. Dissol!!!!!!!! Fancy meeting YOU here! I think you're the only sucker... I mean... myDLer who dared to click on that link! :-)

By the way, and I ain't just blowing smoke when I say this, but you totally slay me! Even the skeleton crew will be cracking up.

I had to comment, as you deal with some burning issues here!!

I work at a newspaper and write headlines for a living. And I can tell you that we copy editors live for stories like this one.

Redsaid Author Profile Page said:

Dissol: The issues are positively smoking, yes! Nyar har!

alonewithcats: You live for stories like this... while the poor deceased in the crematorium had to die for it! Seriously though, much respect to you, Ms. Copy Editor! For my current job I have to write my own headlines, and it is far more difficult than I ever imagined it would be! I am such an amateur, I ALWAYS go for the lame puns.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
