    Can't provide the stats on how many knew the answer to this one, but here goes...

    Who makes it, has no need of it.
    Who buys it, has no use for it.
    Who uses it can neither see nor feel it.

    Who buys it, has no use for it.

    I don't think it quite fits. You can buy a coffin before you die. After you're in it, I would think you'd be using it.

    Hi beetlejuice,

    look at it this way...

    Who makes it, has no need of it.
    (the coffinmaker, don't know the technical term)
    Who buys it, has no use for it.
    the relatives buy the coffin for the deceased..
    Who uses it can neither see nor feel it.
    the deceased cannot see or feel it...


    ;) chiana

    If you knew a woman who was pregnant, and ...

    she had 8 kids already,

    three of whom were deaf,

    two of whom were blind,

    one mentally retarded, and

    she had syphilis.

    Would you recommend that she have an abortion?




    will post Answer later
