After being laid off from his previous three jobs over the past three years, Donald Phelps of Cloverport, Wisconsin says he has finally found a 'layoff proof' profession...the funeral sciences.

"There are so many boomers out there in their 60's now popping off at the drop of a ..well, you name it, they get high on it! Many of them haven't really changed and those who did have pretty well eaten themselves underground", laughed Phelps, apparently all the way to the bank.

"Plus, it doesn't take too much schooling to keep a job here unless you want to be the autopsy guy who does the dirty", quoted the big cut-up.

"Then there are those who must have the skills to counsel grieving families and prepare the bodies. I'm that person and I'm pulling down $60,000 a year until I begin pushing up the daisies myself", stated Phelps, while digging his elbow into my side.

"Can you dig it?"

I guess you have to have a good sense of humor to work in this business, but I prefer to take my chances with reporting the news.

Although I might giggle slightly when I read of Mr. Phelps playing harp duets with Michael Jackson.
