Obituary of Common Sense

RIP, commonsense. You were great to have around. Still, nice to know you’re survived by your two step-brothers, Half-Wit and Dim-Wit. Author Lori Borgman crafted this obituary to Common Sense over a decade ago, and the note was subsequently picked up, modified, and broadcasted on radio by BBC presenter Stuart George. It’s practically dripping with sarcasm, and it’s handy to have around for these times when you miss the poor dead chap.
