I’m sorry but the news today begged this kind of title. Granted, the Times article entitled Funerals could become cheaper as hearse service is liberalised was a bit less morbid, but J’accuse is J’accuse. In this day and age when the cost of living is on everybody’s mind can it safely be said that this kind of news will be welcomed with a sigh of relief? Probably not – but I guess it’s the first step in the transport “revolution”. By the way, the pic could be a bit misleading… it’s the hearse service, not the coffin sales, that could become cheaper – tant biex taghraf tmut infurmat! (fate i dovuti scongiuri).
– “Pardon me for living, I’m sure.”
– NO-ONE GETS PARDONED FOR LIVING.
