Eddie the Dead Voter

Uh, Hi..

My name is Eddie. I’m dead. I had thought that there might not even be anything left that I neded to pray for but something’s come up…

See, I just found out that somebody from a group named ACORN has signed me up to vote on November 4th. You know, where I am now, it shouldn’t make much of a difference to me who wins an election back in the “vale of tears” as we call it here but somehow this really kind of irks me and I’d like to at least have my say.

It’s outrageous- but what’s even worse is that the mainstream media are ignoring the whole thing too. It’s kind of like my wake. There I was, in the box, supposedly the center of attention, and all my old friends were talking about The Super Bowl and my wife and her Friends were talking about how cold it was and what to wear to the funeral. Yeah, I know wakes are for the living, and they had to find ways of carrying on… But I am really tired of having people say. “Oh, Eddie would have wanted it this way.”

This Obama guy is going to get my vote and I don’t even get a say. That’s not fair to the living but its even more unfair to the dead. That is why I have decided to start this Organization League of Dead Voters- our slogan is “We don’t want it this way!”

Not impressed? Wait till our first rally!

My name is Ed, and I'm also dead. And this whole mess has got me mad as hell* and I'm not taking it any more.

(*Pun intended. I used to think steamy, August afternoons were hot, man was I wrong.)

Anyway, me and some of the other stiffs (always keep our sense of humor!) in the pit have been wondering just exactly we could do about it.

We want to start a chapter of your organization!

Good Idea Kathy- I was going to take a picture of myself and then I realized- Hey, I'm Dead! I won't show up on film...

Welcome to the club, Ed! You are more than qualified and there are no dues to pay since you already paid the ultimate price- You can have a chapter.

Fantastic! Can I have my say too?

May I suggest a different slogan for the group?
How about: "Over our dead bodies!"

I like it Roddy, "Vote for Obama? Over Our Dead Bodies!"
