I've just read the whole thing and hubby thinks I've gone crazy, sitting here larffing to myself!! My best one - A friend's ancestor died from being decapitated by a train after following the track home from the pub...... I told my father-in-law about it and he said,........''Oh, that's terrible. Did he die??'' LOL Merry

My mum’s friend has a death cert that says “eaten by a tiger”. Apparently he was part of a circus. LOL -I just read through this thread again and some people have deleted their contributions so now it appears as if a few of us were talking to ourselves.

Pat Type in 'most amusing' in the search bar. It was the one with 2 replies (one of which was mine). That's when I decided it was someone else's turn. Lyla


Aileen Report 23 Feb 2005 13:24

I remember reading a 100 year old extract from a local paper about someone dying after losing ' two bucketfuls of blood' on earth did they know that? Aileen


Pat Report 23 Feb 2005 13:24

Lyla, Just read back and it was Peter! he's cheeky. I didn't want to start something that someone else had thought of that's why I said that. What thread did you only get one reply? must have missed that one, was that just after this or more recent? Pat x


Aileen Report 23 Feb 2005 13:22

Marion, I have griping and stopping too...they are hurting big time! Aileenx

Gerri - what a brill idea! I've been to a couple of 'oldies' brithday parties where they've laminated old photos as coasters, but the cerificates would be great as placemats!!
