Haha, what if just like surprise birthday parties, we had surprise funerals.
Imagine, you're going home and you open your door. Finally I get to relax, or so you think. You turn the light on and BOOM.
"SURPRISE!!! YOUR DOG PASSED AWAY!!!"
WTF you think. What now, are you sad? Are you angry? Confetti flies all over the door, people roll in the a cake with a statue of your dog on top. You all eat the cake and everyone drinks. You're still confused as hell and not sure what to think. Everyone leaves, you go to bed. Laying on your bed you're not sure what to think and as you roll on the bed you decide to do something rash.
