INTRODUCTION

We all know that no one really dies, they just have something happen to. them in a rather final manner.

To find out what will happen to you in a few years, read on.

Thanks to Mark Israel for starting this list, and especially for those. of you who continue to add to it.

And, please don't complain that some are really stupid. I know they are.

This list is posted the first Tuesday of each month into rec.humor.

PS: If you have any more jokes to add to this list, please send them to me.
