My Condolences

As a guitarist, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked
by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a
homeless man. He had no family er friends, so the
service was to be at a pauper' s cemetery in the back
country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got
lost.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy
had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.
There were only the diggers and crew left and they were
eating lunch.
I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I
went to the side of the grave and looked down and the
vault lid was already in place. I didn' t know what else to
do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to
gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this
man with no family and friends. I played like I' never
played before for this homeless man.
And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began
to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I
finished I packed up my guitar and started for my car.
Though my head hung low, my heart was full.
As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the
workers say, "I never seen nothin' like that before and
I' been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."
Apparently, I' m still lest...

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians segregate from everybody, have completely expressionless faces, and are very untalkative to hide that they can read minds. Asians have expressionless faces to avoid accidently showing facial expressions when people think things they don't Ike, find funny, astonishing etc, so they segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening. Asians also segregate and are very untalkative to avoid accidently saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give peopledirty/particular looks for what appears to be for no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!!!!!!

That's because you can't make a story of one man both playing bagpipes and singing Amazing grace at the same time.

Unless he where playing the bagpipes out of his ass.

Bagpipes are ******* awesome.

REAL MEN DON'T PLAY BELLOWPIPES. REAL MEN PLAY THE REAL BAGPIPES.

Or shuttlepipes or small pipes if they are at a bar. yes, there are more than one type of bagpipe.
#78 to #29 - isolotop (04/19/2013) [-]
I used to play the bag pipes, my instructor despised me so i quit.

**** me right?
#125 to #78 - mintweed (04/19/2013) [-]
you never stop playing the bagpipes if you're a real man. REAL MEN DREAM BAGPIPES.

I remember this story, but with a bagpipe not a guitar. Still funny though.

******* love Lost. Got into it a little less than a month ago. Started season 4 yesterday.
User avatar #95 to #70 - secretdestroyers (04/19/2013) [-]
Ooh, the only spoiler I'm gonna give is that it starts to get considerably more confusing than usual after the 4th season...
User avatar #126 to #95 - dyldoemackinson (04/19/2013) [-]
I have 2 episodes to go. I see what you mean by more confusing.

Why would they bury a homeless man in a septic tank? :'(
That's just mean.
#109 to #19 - iscreamsonday (04/19/2013) [-]
they seal a bit better and are much cheaper than an actual coffin. also once the body decomposes all you have to do is hook up a few pipes and you got a perfectly working septic tank

They want to preserve his natural musk in death.

IT'S A BAGPIPE PLAYER NOT A GUITAR PLAYER

Cuz bagpipe players are easy to find
cuz a bagpipe player is the go-to person for funerals.
New Orleans have funerals in which, sometimes, jazz is played.
I think it's Amsterdam where, if you have no next-of-kin for your funeral, the city hires a bard to read a poem for you.
bagpipes, at least in America, are normally seen at the funeral of a police officer, sometimes for soldiers.

He's talking about an old post bout a month a go if I remember. Same thing, just with bag pipe.

Go apologize to it. It didn't know any better and you know how stubborn it can be

He's JonTron. He does game reviews and he has a gameplay channel called Game Grumps. You have no idea how hard it was for me to resist saying battletoads.

thiss guy reminds me so much of Josh from Drake and Josh, but i have never seen a single video. All I can hear from anything he says is a high pitched "Let's GO ************ " tone of voice. Or maybe the "HUG ME BROTHA!" one. I'm not sure.
