Can We PLEASE Fucking Stop?

Can we stop referring to dead people as angels in guest books and obituaries, PLEASE? It gags the shit out of me. Referring to the departed as an angel is the most nauseating and unoriginal thing you could possibly say. You might as well say the dead person was nice--
that shit is so fucking un-descriptive.

[And YES, I know un-descriptive is not a word. Fuck you.]

That bothers me, too. Angel? Bullshit.

Remember that TV show, Highway To Heaven? Man, that's where all that saccharine bullshit comes from!

I swear, every other obit here starts out, "Jane Doe has gone to be with her Lord and Savior," or some such crap. Here's a thing I saw on the window of a van today, just to vent my spleen a little more: "Just in case, PRAY!"
Fuckwads.
Excuse me.

But you know what? I think some of the 'angels' were a-holes, so maybe calling someone an 'angel' might be a cool way of saying they were a jerk!!

I love you guys. No seriously, I do. You're all angels, here on earth, walking around pretending to be humans... Oh fuck, I just got puke all over my new shoes.

Marla,
I am happy to have made you smile, and I meant every word in the post. Angels make me fucking puke.

Rabbit Hole is a good movie. In it, a grief support group talks about the dead loved ones. A couple explains that God wanted another angel. Nicole Kidman who plays the grieving mother who lost her son, says, "Well, why didn't he make one. Why didn't he make another fucking angel?" A good point.

Yes, and while were at it, can we stop calling them saints too??

Amen and A ho!
