So Dear Leader wants to be buried at Arlington?

A Facebook friend posted a few minutes ago and wrote that Dear Leader had said something to the effect that he'd like to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. This was news to me.

And the friend asked everyone to comment with their reactions to hearing this unusual and unexpected news.

Here's what I had to say about it:

Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand the idea here. Will this be this week? I can't break free right now, schedule-wise, so that I could attend the burial.

All the same, I will clear my schedule if we're gonna have a big ceremony AND we can get it done before the vacation I've got scheduled beginning on the 16th.

Since this will be such an auspicious and joy-filled day, I'm more than willing to buy a new suit! I know a burial is sometimes a somber occasion, but it doesn't HAVE to be black, does it?

Let me know, there's a lot of planning that would have to go into this.

Oh yes, and if you need someone to do the eulogy, I'm all over it. I've got a lot of "nice" things to say about our beloved, beneficent, all-seeing, all-knowing, compassionate, majestic and supremely big-brained Leader but haven't quite found a suitable occasion; you know what I mean?

Be sure and let me know.
