I'm really not that busy

Finding hilarity in the mundane since 2008

Dear Abby, you’re a smartass

This morning I was reading the paper and happened to glance at Dear Abby*.  I’m not a regular Dear Abby reader, but the lead sparked my interest: “Woman’s Shocking Discovery Puts Man in Unmarked Grave.” My curiosity peaked, I read on.

Here’s  the gist… a married couple discovers they are half siblings.  The man has a heart attack shortly thereafter.  The woman then writes to Dear Abby because she wonders if she should put “Loving Brother” (ew) or “Loving Husband (ew, ew) on his gravestone.  Abby’s reply?

“He was everything to me.”

*The actual letter sounds fake, but it’s still funny.

      Okay, Austin Cressley, I’m a little tired today. Hubby has shingles and all. You meant maybe MacKenzie Phillips wrote the LETTER. I read your comment as maybe she wrote the REPLY. Your way is much funnier. Your email address made me chuckle too.

    Fake for sure, but fodder for all the fundamentalists in the audience. !!!!
