Latest flight of fancy

  1. Strange question, but have any of you ever worked as a mortician?

    Okay, I've rented the first season of Six Feet Under, and I'm thinking....Hey man I could do that! Not too different from what I already do, the dead don't argue back (or get psychotic, for that matter), you never have to worry about killing them because they're already dead! Sweet! It's a growing industry and you can make a lot of $$$.

    I once met a guy who was studying law enforcement and had a mortician's license too. Very interesting!

    There is a lady in my class that was a mortician. She finally decided she wanted to work with live people.

    Yes, but adrie...there is the familiy thing....You really can't say "Of COURSE he looks dead!!!! HE IS DEAD....HE is NOT sleeping!!! Shut up and like it or I'll get you a casket of your own!!!"
