OSU Family Uses Corpse in O-H-I-O Photo
But it does leave the door wide open for five-star alphabet contortionist Uncle Robert to seize the job when he arrives from Columbus.
Ugh, Albert Lin'd
What it is, what it was, and what it shall be.
This is a bit off topic, but I was doing a set at the Ice House a few weeks ago and some comic actually tried to pass this 24 astronauts thing off as his own bit. He even told it wrong. I could have said something to him, but since he was eating it pretty badly there was kinda no point.
No idea, but every time I see your avatar I want to nuke it.
I don't get it
Well ya know, OSU fans aren't really known for their intelligence...
I just got what you said...Funny.
O H _ O
I love football, too. But there's a line between loving your team and being a mouth-breathing goober. I wonder if the dearly departed was sent to his reward wearing a necklace of buckeye nuts.
This is funny and pisses me off. Conflicted.
Maybe the deceased suggested the pose?
Maybe it was his last request. If not, that's kind of ridiculous.
Having said that (anybody see the new Curb?) at this point in my life I'd consider being buried in some M swag. Or painted maize and blue from head to toe. Oh that's an idea!
Was buried in all M gear and The Victors was sang.
I bet your family didn't have a ear-to-ear grin standing next to the deceased, stay classy ohio...
I plan to put some of my father's ashes on the field at the Big House at the spot where Desmond struck the pose so he will never miss a game, hopefully this will be many many years from now
"He was always telling people to GO BLUE that nobody batted an eye when he turned blue. Whoops."
Woody was a history major.
I'm speechless. I mean, I can't even joke about it because all the jokes have been done over and over again, because this stuff just keeps comin gup
is plum loco.
IF I was filthy enough to be a bucknut lover, this was my funeral, and those pigs dressed in clothing were my relatives I would be returning to haunt said family.
I like that they did this. Get past the OSU fan part...a funeral should include some celebration of the life of the deceased. I like it.
A celebration is one thing...I just can't imagine a situation where I would want a picture of a dead body. I'd prefer to remember my father as alive and not lying motionless in a casket. But, that's just me.
Not sure about Ohio tradition but where I'm from you wear dark clothing and usually a tie and jacket at funerals.
These folks are dressed for a carnival or fireworks.
Please don't presume to pose me as anything.
That needs updated to include worship of JT. You could take space from the PBR thirst. A cold PBR on a hot day really isn't that bad in a pinch. Did I just admit that in writing?
look at this fucking hipster!
A cold PBR on a hot day, is not the worst thing I can think of. If the family thought it was ok, I can live with it. Was it odd, yes.
in ohio they could have done much worse to the body after a few PBRs.
This might be the least suprising thing i have ever seen...
Disturbing but not surprising.
When I clicked on the thread, I was really hoping the corpse was one of the Os.
the dead guy being posed as the "I" was named "Roy Miracle".
Really? And all the people named in the article have the same last name? This is some wierd stuff.
I assume this is part of that "three days in Ohio" campaign, getting to participate in disturbingly morbid Buckeye funeral rites......
you pass the Ohio Historical Society, near Crew Stadium. Among other things, the sign on their giant, highway-side marquee proclaims, "Let's Explore OHIO!" No, historical society. Let's not.
I will be doing this very thing - we're taking the kids to Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky. I will be the one in Wolverine gear smiling awkwardly as the Buckeye fans figure out what they would like to do to me....
I doubt they will say much or even look at you funny, I took my daughter to the Columbus Zoo (yes that Columbus) last week for the first time. Of course I was decked out in my Michigan gear no one said a word. I even shot the shit with an OSU fan about the price of beer
I am debating going down to Toledo this weekend.
Looks like somehting WWF's Jimmy Hart would wear.
Finally, OHIO! Why does 1 out of the 4 people participating have to be dead for it to be spelled right?
but these people have just lowered the bar for buckeyes.
I think I've made my distaste for all things scarlet and gray pretty clear, but I just can't find any reason to be the least bit pissed about this. It's sorta like people from Ann Arbor getting buried in a Michigan shirt or sweatshirt. I actually think it is quite funny, and applaud the family for not having a stick up its collective ass.
Who can ever say they went to a funeral and had fun? For an Ohio fan, there apparently isn't anything more fun than singing the "don't give a damn" song. Does the photo look stupid? Yes. Does that make it bad? It depends on who's doing the judging.
At my funeral, the officiant is going to lead us in a round of The Victors before reading a passage Schembechler 3:17.
I will definitely have a round of "The Victors", then someone in the back will start chanting, "THE TEAM! THE TEAM!"
just three more letters to go and we'll be done with them.
Why be pissed when the metaphor needs no caption?
Still the life of the party.
I don't know if I would ever approach anything like that, but I will be buried in some Michigan gear, and have my class ring on.
This is what it's going to look like when the NCAA leaves Columbus.
Grim Reaper could have dotted the I.
This was actually taken after the Jim Harbaugh "guaranteed"1986 26-24 Michigan victory over nOSU. Alot of buckeyes died that day!
The guy in the casket isn't dead; they're just taking turns getting into the casket for a photo after the latest football reruiting news.
