an obituary from home

Being from the Mesabi Iron Range in Minnesota, I often visit the online site of the newspaper I grew up reading to check the news and obituaries.  Recently I came across this line in an obituary for a 90 year old woman:  “She enjoyed watching television, especially poker, wrestling and Catholic Mass.”

Meaning no respect for the newly dead, nor their recent TV watching habits, but that sentence sums up life on ‘da rench’…a non sequitur…a Zippy-ism (see  http://www.zippythepinhead.com/ my favorite newspaper comic), much like “Chubby Checker ate a cheese sandwich in Duluth.”

Poker, wrestling and Catholic Mass.

Poker, wrestling and Catholic Mass.

Me like.
