Talking about Death

From my Twitter!

Ever find yourself talking about death? Looking for an event that’s equal parts macabre and fascinating? You might want to consider visiting the Oddities and Curiosities Expo, which recently made its way to Atlanta, GA. Its filled with unexpected treasures and oddities that will certainly pique your interest. 

As you make your way through the expo, you’ll quickly discover that death is a recurring theme throughout the event. But rather than being morbid, it’s handled in a way that’s both respectful and even a bit humorous.

You see, there’s a knack to finding humor in death. It can be a sensitive topic for some people, however, and it’s important to be respectful of those who may not share the same viewpoint. However, for those who are open to it, there are a few ways to get a chuckle from the Grim Reaper’s work: 

  1. Laugh at the absurdity of it all. Death is a natural part of life, but it can also be a strange and absurd experience. Try finding humor in the oddities and quirks of death. Look for things like bizarre funeral traditions or odd tombstones, can help lighten the mood. 
  1. Appreciating the memories. When someone dies, it can be a time to reflect on the positive memories you shared with them. Sharing funny stories and anecdotes about the person can be a way to celebrate their life and bring joy to what can be a difficult time. 
  1. Finding the silver lining. While death is often associated with sadness and grief, it can also bring people together and inspire a sense of community. Sometimes finding humor in shared experiences, like reminiscing about a loved one’s quirky habits or sharing funny memories, can help bring people closer and provide comfort during a difficult time. 
  1. The shock of your acceptance. When others tend to want to become softer in their approach of you once they’ve found that a loved one of yours has passed, it can really break the tension and awkwardness of it all by making a light-hearted joke at the dead loved one’s expense. 

I hope these work for you, guys. 
 
I’ll see you next week. In the meantime, keep talking about death.
