ThatNiceMan asks: Have you ever been talking with people down the pub when somebody throws such a complete curveball (Sample WTF moment: "I wonder what it's like to get bummed") that all talk is stopped dead? Tell us!

A couple of years ago, I was at a mate's funeral. It wasn't a happy occasion; he'd hit a tree, and because he was divorced and his firm kept no records of his ex or kids, they hadn't got to his bedside while he was still conscious.

So far, so bummer.

But: someone had brought his satnav in, as Grimsby Crem is noted for scrotes doing cars during services. Just before his son got up to the reading, a disembodied voice said "You have reached your destination".
Dead silence, followed by muffled snorts from half the congregation.

Before the topic closes:
Here's a link to Andy's obit, in the newsletter of the .org I help run: www.pdafund.org/news.html, low down on the right. Brilliant bloke and a sad loss to not just his friends and family but St Johns Ambulance, where he was made a Serving Brother, something they don't hand out with the milk.

Sleep well mate, you earned it.
