Dad: Honey, I have some bad news for you. Fluffy has gone to the other side.

Sarah: You mean she’s out of her cage again? I’ll go and try to find her.

Dad: No, you don’t understand. Fluffy passed away in the night.

Sarah: Oh, she died! That’s too bad, but she was getting up there in years.

Dad: Yes, but she didn’t die a natural death. She was run over by the neighbor’s car.

Sarah: You mean she was flattened? Cool!

Dad: Well, I wouldn’t put it that way, but I understand if you’re in shock. I guess people show grief in different ways...

Sarah: Fluffy went out with a bang. That’s the way she would have wanted to go.

Dad: I’d like to think of her as being in heaven and she’s gone to meet her maker.

Sarah: I don’t think there’s an afterlife for animals, Dad. It’s all just a part of the circle of life.

Dad: Okay. I thought we could have a funeral for her so we can pay our respects.

Sarah: Is that really necessary?

Sarah: No, let’s just bury her in the backyard.

Dad: And who said that the youth of today is cynical?
