OK, here goes. About 8 years ago I had a colleaugue who had a really great "warped" sense of humor. He passed away unexpectedly. Apparently he had an arrangement with a friend to put an new tape in his answering machine upon his demise. It said.
"Hello, this is Bruce. I'm dead now so dont bother calling this number any more!"
I really miss that guy. He kept us all in stitches when he was alive. He gave us one last "tweak" after he left us.
