HE TODAY HELD HIS OWN FUNERAL ALTHOUGH HE’S STILL ALIVE AND HEALTHY! ABSURD, CRAZY OR DESPERATE .. Just add all the adjectives to describe this madness !

Sources in the community told us that this FUNERAL is causing quite a road block  and it is going on right now as I am writing  this. Funeral procession, Hearse and all these things. Desperation to the thousandth power! The funeral had mourners and just about everything that takes place at a funeral !! Heard he even held a dead yard set up the night before with mannish water and ghost whisperers.

    He said the UDC remains fully in charge of the facility, and is in the process of increasing the attractions there, especially in relation to children, which has been inadequate.
