Today's Chuckle

Here's a knee-slapper for ya. I worry that in about 40 years people in the USA will be lobbying for legislation so they can marry animals...


BURIED WITH FLUFFY

HARTSDALE, N.Y. (AP) _ A STATE AGENCY HAS TOLD NEW YORK'S ANIMAL
CEMETERIES TO STOP BURYING THE ASHES OF PET OWNERS ALONGSIDE THEIR
BELOVED CATS, DOGS AND PARAKEETS.

THE ORDER FROM NEW YORK'S DIVISION OF CEMETERIES HAS BLOCKED AT
LEAST ONE BURIAL. AND IT HAS UPSET PEOPLE WHO HAD ARRANGED IN
ADVANCE TO JOIN THEIR DEAD PETS, BUT NOW MAY HAVE TO GO ELSEWHERE.
A CEMETERY DIRECTOR IS RESISTING, ASKING THE STATE TO ALLOW
INTERMENTS OF PEOPLE ALREADY SIGNED UP. AND A LAWYER WHOSE UNCLE
DIED AFTER THE ORDER WAS ISSUED SAYS THE CEMETERY DIVISION IS WRONG
ON THE LAW. SHE HAS SENT THE STATE A DETAILED LEGAL MEMO AND SAYS
SHE'LL SUE IF SHE HAS TO.

PET CEMETERY OFFICIALS REPORTED RECENTLY THAT THE NUMBER OF
AMERICANS SEEKING BURIAL WITH THEIR PETS WAS RISING

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
