I guess this is not a very light side of somebody\'s life, but ...

I translated a text on dead body disposal. So far, so good. Life ends so. Still, I found it absurd that the dead body was referred to as the Beneficiary of services rendered, although it was the real beneficiary. Eh...?

I like dark humor, too. But I\'m not sure if this is dark humor...

Anyway, thanks and have a good day.
