A man named Homer had one catastrophe after another and could not take it any more.
"If I have anything else wrong with me, I'll blow my brains out."
So a few weeks later, I.B. Moleturd came into Ye Olde Martha Grimes Inn and didn't see Homer.
"What happened to Homer?"
"Blew his brains out."
"Something else happen to him?"
"Yeah. He went deaf."
"And that was the end of the line?"
"No, he said it was actually peaceful. But then, everyone had to talk to him with hand signals and you know how Homer hated mimes?"
