Today’s Stand-up URL

No, it has nothing to do with the Edinburgh Fringe. It’s Puerto Rican, actually, and concerns a most curious wake. Thanks to the Register for the English story, which I saw yesterday in Spanish, but even with the help of Babelfish I had difficulty translating it well enough to share with you all.

Do visit the site referenced at the end of the story, by the way. My Singaporean Chinese friends especially will find this a very pertinent story, given that this is the month of the Hungry Ghost.

    I have to say I was slightly disappointed — I was expecting this to be a story about a wake where the, um, guest of honor turned out to be alive.

    Oh, well, sorry to disappoint. If I were going to have a wake, I might want to emulate this gentleman. However, that’s only a Manhattan-fuelled desire. In a few hours I’ll go back to wanting to be decently and rapidly cremated.
