Apparently they had a Day of the Dead Tele-seminar.
Then they had a Day of the Dead Celebration at Chiltern Woodland Burial Park . If you check out the link closely, you will see it seems they were so rowdy that they raised a skeleton from the graveyard and he (I think it is a male pelvis) started to play the fiddle. Doubtless some years before he will have had a fun funeral, and they probably had a special coffin made for him to accommodate his Stradivarius. Perhaps his Special Coffin was made by one of the members of “Dying Matters.” Perhaps he happily discussed the design of his coffin with this member once he realised he was supposed to talk about his imminent death to everyone so that they could prepare for the celebration. Perhaps he even looked forward to a death as part of the “Cycle of Life” when he could lie cuddling his Stradivarius for all eternity.
“Anyone can participate in this special day, whether or not their loved one is buried in the park – please come along and take part, and see for yourself how death is a part of the cycle of life.”
The Witch Doctor sees where they are coming from, however this is sanitising talk. It is more likely that life is part of the cycle of death. In more scientific terminology, death is part of the nitrogen cycle and incidentally, that is why dog owners should not shovel dog poo into plastic bags. Dog poo is also part of the nitrogen cycle or “The Cycle of Life” if you prefer to call it that.
Actually, we witches seldom use the word “poo” when we are talking among ourselves. We use the word “shit” a lot but we are using “poo” here for the benefit of The Sanitary Humankind. And you will note we have not placed the lovable shit which should be celebrated in a plastic bag but on a newspaper which doubtless will also become part of the celebrated “Cycle of Life.”
Enough of these festivities. There are more serious matters to be discussed.
Seven is The Witching Number.
Seven times three is Twenty One. So, as you can imagine 21 is a Very, Very Witching Number.
We have given them 21 days. Haven’t we, My Black Cat?
In 21 days, “Dying Matters” has not removed “Dignity in Dying” from its membership.
This is exactly what The Witch Doctor said would happen in a comment below a previous post.
However, “Dying Matters” immediately removed “Friends at the End” shortly after The Witch Doctor posted about them.
I wonder why “Friends at the End” was removed from the “Dying Matters” website and yet DIGNITY IN DYING was not…..
The Witch Doctor thinks she knows the answer.
Can you work it out too, My Black Cat?
